After Real Madrid made the official announcement that they have signed Keylor Navas from Levante last night, they didn’t waste any time in making changes to the club as their third (now fourth) goalkeeper, Jesus Fernandez, has went the other way and joined Levante on a permanent transfer.
Jesus Fernandez wasn’t a goalkeeper who many had the joy to watch when it comes to the first team appearances but he has done greatly during his time with Real Madrid Castilla before being promoted to the first team. Being third in the order behind Iker Casillas and Diego Lopez for the past couple seasons (and Antonio Adan before that), it was always going to be slightly impossible for him to get any legitimate first team opportunities at the club. With that said, it seems as though it was time for him to find a place where he would be able to make his name known and Levante is his chosen destination.
Jesus Fernandez’s Club Titles:
Segunda Division (2011-2012)
Spanish SuperCup (2012)
Copa del Rey (2013-2014)
UEFA Champions League (2013-2014)
Now, the time has come for Jesus Fernandez to part ways with Real Madrid as the club concentrate on the dilemma of having three world-class goalkeepers. As for Jesus, he will certainly be happy to have joined a club in the Spanish first division where he will be able to show what he is truly capable of.
Good luck and thank you for everything, Jesus Fernandez!
