WATCH: Keylor Navas makes incredible save against Bayern Munich

Though Keylor Navas’ future with Real Madrid is very much up in the air, the Costa Rican football star continues to show why he’s one of the elite goalkeepers in the world. His latest highlight came with a beautiful save in Real Madrid’s 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich during the Audi Cup Wednesday.

Bayern Munich looked to have a sure goal when Douglas Costa broke free and kicked a gorgeous cross pass to a wide-open Mario Götze on the back post. But the ultra-aggressive Navas barreled through another Bayern attacker to make the save.

Off the pitch, rumors continue to swirl regarding Navas’ fate with Real Madrid. The club is expected to pursue Spaniard David De Gea, despite his seven-figure buyout clause at Manchester United. That potential move could lead to a switch in goal for both clubs, as British papers are reporting that Man U has heavy interest in signing Navas away from Madrid.

Following his dominant 2014 World Cup performance, San Keylor, as he’s affectionately referred to in Costa Rica, moved to Real Madrid after the high-rolling club bought out Navas’ contract at Levante for a reported 10 million euros ($10.9 million).
