Valdano blasts: Real Madrid never appreciated Keylor from day one

Former Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano feels Keylor Navas has never been fully appreciated by management.

The goalkeeper appears on his way out this summer.

And Valdano lamented to El Pais: "The goalie's merits are punished instead of being rewarded. Keylor Navas has been rejected in Madrid since the day of his arrival.

"He was saved twice. Once thanks to a late fax, while (David) De Gea was the object of desires and another time on decision of (Zinedine) Zidane, when (Kepa) Arrizabalaga was about to sign for Real. This time, nothing will save or hold him."
