In what has been a rather turbulent week for the aspirations of Keylor Navas to compete for the starting position in goal at Paris Saint-Germain, after the decision made by the new technical director Christophe Galtier — choosing the Italian Gianluigi Donnarumma —, the Costa Rican goalkeeper must think about looking for a new club that gives him minutes.

All this after L’Equipe made it known and the Parc des Princes institution is already sounding out alternatives in the summer transfer market. Within this situation, Galtier is not the only one involved in this movement, since the Portuguese Luis Campos, external soccer adviser, prefers to bet on a 23-year-old player than on a 35-year-old.

For what reasons would PSG miss Keylor Navas?

  • Due to the great objective of the French squad to win the ‘Orejona’ of the UEFA Champions League, which Keylor has already won on up to 3 consecutive occasions, being key in the ‘Merengue’ goal to help defeat teams like Atlético de Madrid, Juventus and Liverpool.
  • The Parisian team would miss out on a multi-champion goalkeeper in European football, with experience that ranges from winning titles in Spain and being a Real Madrid legend during the time of Zinedine Zidane.
  • Not only would a soccer player at club level leave, but also the pillar of the Costa Rican National Team that will be in a new World Cup in Qatar 2022, in which it will be his third World Cup date. Taking into account that Donnarumma has not yet played a World Cup with Italy.
  • Although he is on his way to becoming one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Gianluigi Donnarumma’s mistakes have cost the Parisians goals against and this can spread insecurity within the squad. Keylor Navas has good footwork and helps his squads out.
  • Getting rid of Navas means the option of reinforcing an institution that has options to play for titles against the French and would represent giving tools to other teams to be crowned UCL champions before the Parisian squad.
