Navas ready for Madrid fight

Madrid - Real Madrid unveiled its new goalkeeper Keylor Navas Tuesday after he signed a six-year contract with the Spanish club.

The 27-year-old helped Costa Rica reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup for the first time this summer in Brazil.

At his presentation, Navas says he sees an opportunity to "learn from the best," with Iker Casillas and Diego Lopez already apart of coach Carlo Ancelotti's first-team squad.

Navas insisted that he isn't worried about vying with Casillas and Lopez for game time as the pair have been "references for my career and I can learn a lot from both of them."

Madrid announced the deal on Sunday after reaching an agreement with fellow Spanish club Levante reportedly worth €10 million.
