Real Madrid have improved Keylor Navas’s contract at the club, reports Marca.
The club have announced a spate of contract renewals in recent weeks – Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez have all put pen to paper on new deals, while Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to do so soon.
Meanwhile, the club have privately improved goalkeeper Navas’s deal to reflect his increased importance at the Bernabeu.
The Costa Rican’s salary has increased from €2m to close to €4m, although the length of his contract has not changed. Navas is under contract at Madrid until the summer of 2020.
“It is only fair,” the club said on the matter.
Navas actually turned down higher salaries to continue at Real, something Los Blancos duly noted, Manchester United offering up to 8 million euros in the past.
Unlike his other teammates, the Costa Rican has extended the amount of time at the club, and as a result, his announcement won’t be accompanied by a celebratory press conference.
