Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is a “major doubt” for when his side face Tottenham in the Champions League in two weeks’ time, according to a reliable journalist.
Last Word On Spurs podcaster and freelancer Ricky Sacks, who is a reliable source of Tottenham news, claimed on his personal Twitter account on Friday that Navas, 30, is likely to miss Madrid’s visit to Wembley on November 1.

Los Blancos confirmed on their official website that the Costa Rica international had suffered an injury to his right adductor muscle and although they do not give a time-frame for his injury, they have announced that his recovery will continue to be monitored.
Navas was in hot form when Spurs drew 1-1 at the Bernabeu on Tuesday, pulling off a number of world-class saves to keep the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen at bay.
The goalkeeper has been ever-present for Real this season, making 12 appearances across all competitions, but missed the last La Liga game against Getafe last week, which prompted fears that he may have been sidelined for this week’s game against Tottenham.
As it stands, Kiko Casilla and teenager Moha Ramos are Zinedine Zidane’s back-up options to play between the sticks, should Navas remain sidelined for the big Champions League group stage clash with Spurs next month.
