Jesus Navas: 'Future in God's hands'

Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas welcomes reported interest from Barcelona.

Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas has revealed that reported interest from Barcelona 'motivates' him to continue improving.

The 27-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best stoppers in La Liga, with his performances this season drawing a host of interest from across Europe.

However, the Costa Rican has insisted that his feet are still firmly on the ground.

"I've had a difficult journey and coming from a small country I always knew I would have to fight to make it. Sometimes I wondered if it would all be worth it. It was my family who gave me strength," he told Marca.

"Barcelona? That's in God's hands. I live in the present. I don't think about the long term. It motivates me, but I take it in my stride. It means I'm doing my job well and I intend on continuing that way."

Navas joined Levante from Albacete in 2012.
