Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is reportedly on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain, according to Marca via Sports Mole.
Having been relegated to No.2 at the Bernabeu since the arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer, Navas is now allegedly keen to leave the Spanish capital after five years of service.
The 32-year-old was limited to just 10 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos last term and has been left on the bench for the club’s opening two fixtures against Celta Vigo and Real Valladolid – a telling sign that he is not the main man at the Bernabeu anymore.
From PSG’s point of view, acquiring Navas makes perfect sense. The French champions lost Gianluigi Buffon earlier this summer, after the veteran shot-stopper rejoined Juventus, leaving the club extremely short in the goalkeeping department.
Bringing in Navas, who has a fantastic pedigree and a vast amount of European experience, should be seen as a fantastic coup. Indeed, he was in goal for the club’s three Champions League titles in a row and could (at least in theory) pass on some knowledge to a team with little pedigree towards the upper echelons of Europe’s elite competition.
According to Marca, conversations have been held between Madrid and PSG, with Navas ready to fly to Paris in order to complete a switch to the Parc des Princes.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Navas to once again reinstate himself as a No.1 at a huge club.
Having spent the previous five seasons at Real Madrid – arguably the biggest football club in the world – he could certainly be of great benefit to the French titans as they look to clinch their first-ever Champions League title this term. After all, he’s done it more than most.
