Navas helped Madrid to La Liga and Champions League glory in 2016-17 but Zinedine Zidane's men have still been linked with Gianluigi Donnarumma, David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois.

Navas, however, is determined to battle it out for the No.1 spot at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I will fight to the death against whoever [arrives]," the Costa Rica international told Marca.

Navas was Madrid's undisputed No.1 during their run to a first La Liga title since 2012 and back-to-back Champions League crowns last season.

The 30-year-old made 27 La Liga appearances and 12 in the Champions League.

"I don't have the words to express my gratitude to Zidane," Navas said.

Navas arrived from fellow Spanish side Levante in 2014, and he has gone on to win La Liga, two Champions League trophies, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
