Gianluigi Buffon says that Real Madrid's Keylor Navas "is a great goalkeeper", despite suggestions that the Spanish and European champions are weak between the sticks.

Gianluigi Buffon has insisted that Real Madrid's Keylor Navas "is a great goalkeeper", despite suggestions that the Spanish and European champions are weak between the sticks.

Manchester United's David de Gea and AC Milan's Gianluigi Donnarumma have both been linked with moves to Real Madrid amid claims that Los Blancos are keen to replace Costa Rica international Navas.

Juventus stopper Buffon, however, has leapt to the defence of the 30-year-old, claiming that the former Levante goalkeeper's success at the Bernabeu is an indication of his importance to the team.

"Real Madrid have not lacked anything over the past 10 years, as they have bought the best footballers," Buffon told Marca. "Keylor Navas is a great goalkeeper, despite what some say.

"They have won two Champions Leagues with him and he has often been important on the way to winning them. I don't believe there is a need to sign, as the results have shown that they are winning as it is."

Navas has made 102 appearances since joining the capital giants from Levante in 2014.
