Though the Costa Rican goalkeepers blushes were spared as a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty secured their passage to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the eighth consecutive season, attention quickly turned to whether he would be replaced.
Navas has been Zinedine Zidanes first-choice goalkeeper in their last two triumphs in the competition but Real have constantly been linked with goalkeepers.
David de Gea, who narrowly missed out on a transfer to the La Liga giants back in 2015, has constantly been tipped to return to the Spanish capital and Navas awful mistake shone the spotlight firmly back onto a potential move for the Manchester United boss this summer.
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was quick to stick the knife into former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand after the frantic quarter-final match, claiming that De Gea would be on the move.

He doesnt need to go to Real Madrid.
Time will tell if hes right…
