On Saturday, Zidane did confirm that he has spoken to 32-year-old Navas, but refused to shed any light on what was discussed.

“Could it be Keylor’s last game? I don’t think so, nor do I want to think about next season either.

“There are many rumours about what’s going to happen but I’m not going to say anything. Nobody knows what I said to Keylor except him and me.

“I will be clear about who will play when the next season starts. It’s my decision. Who do you think is in charge of this team? It’s clear as water: I’m the coach, I will always do what I want and if I can’t then I’ll quit. That’s clear.
