The World Cup is great and it has the ability to highlight just how good some players from all over the world actually are. With the transfer window gaining momentum, expect to see many players that competed in this year’s World Cup to be on the move to some prestigious clubs.

We have already witnessed Luis Suarez sign with FC Barcelona, Toni Kroos to Real Madrid, Luke Shaw to Manchester United and the list continues. Players from around the world that play for countries that are outside of the top-ten in the FIFA rankings have a chance to display their talents in front of millions of viewers. Juan Cuadrado of Colombia, Keylor Navas of Costa Rica and DeAndre Yedlin of the United States all have been rumored to make a transfer to more prestigious leagues such as the German Bundesliga, Serie A, English Premier League, and La Liga.

The latest transfer signing was Navas of Costa Rica. The 27-year-old goalkeeper who previously played at Levante will now suit up for Bayern Munich. Likely to backup Manuel Neuer, but it goes to show that even the not-so-household names can spark interest and attempt to make it count at a world-renowned club.

Navas was wonderful in the World Cup. In regular time, Navas only conceded a goal during group play and helped his team advance to the quarterfinals against the Netherlands. Navas turned many heads when he was in the net for Costa Rica and was a main reason as to why Costa Rica made a run to the quarter-final. Talent is just oozing out of his pores and hopefully Bayern Munich will be able to give Navas some opportunities to mind the net, despite already having the world’s best goalie.
