Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez has back goalkeeper Keylor Navas to retain the No.1 spot at the club despite the Spanish side's interest in Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea.
As reported by Goal.com, the former Liverpool boss, who replaced Carlo Ancelotti as manager of Real earlier this summer, has insisted that Navas has proved himself throughout pre-season so far.
Benitez, of course, guided Real to a 4-1 victory over Manchester City yesterday afternoon, and it appears that he's happy with his goalkeeping options after the sale of Iker Casillas.

The Real chief stated: "I think so, yes, we wanted to give him the chance to play and prove himself and he has done well."
"I only need one goalkeeper on each match, and as long as I have one, I'm happy."
United must keep De Gea
Benitez's comments, then, will no doubt please the Manchester United faithful, who will be desperate to see their Player of the Year stay at the club ahead of next season.
Ultimately, under Louis van Gaal, Manchester United appear to be on the way up, so it's crucial they keep one of their best players at the club.
Of course, De Gea's Old Trafford exit may well end up inevitable, but there's no reason why the Red Devils can't keep hold of him for another year and replace him next summer.
