Keylor Navas unsellable, PSG gets annoyed

Despite mixed performances, Gianluigi Donnarumma remains preferred to Keylor Navas by the staff of Christophe Galtier at PSG.

Paris Saint-Germain absolutely wanted to avoid this situation and yet the debate is once again open about the position of goalkeeper in the capital. As soon as he arrived, Christophe Galtier was very clear with everyone by letting it be known that Gianluigi Donnarumma would be his starter and that this would not change from the first error of the Italian goalkeeper. Unfortunately for PSG, the unreassuring matches of the former Milanese are repeated. The latest, in a shock of the French championship on the lawn of Lens, threw a big chill on the credibility of “Gigio” Donnarumma, while Keylor Navas has been moping on the bench of substitutes since the start of the season. The Costa Rican will play in the Coupe de France in Châteauroux on Saturday and it is to be hoped that PSG will not be too good, otherwise the controversies will continue to feed on the legitimacy of Donnarumma.

Navas, a colossal salary that blocks everything

Last summer, Paris SG did everything possible to avoid this situation since the club’s objective was to sell Keylor Navas, which is what was presented to Donnarumma but also to Galtier. An agreement was very close with Napoli, alongside the deal for Fabian Ruiz. The Spanish midfielder left Italy to join PSG… but Keylor Navas did not go the other way, for lack of agreement between the player and Naples. In this month of January, the winter transfer window gives the reigning French champion another chance to sell Keylor Navas.

Navas, his salary is a problem

But according to L’Equipe, it is almost impossible to part with the Costa Rican international, as the 36-year-old goalkeeper is no longer popular on the transfer market. Estimated at less than 5 million euros by Paris, the former doorman of Real Madrid has a huge salary, close to a million euros per month. Emoluments that have cooled many clubs that were interested in him, in Europe but also in the United States and Mexico. Still under the watch of UEFA and financial fair play, Paris Saint-Germain hope to find a way out in Navas by the end of January. But the mission promises to be tough for the Parisian staff.
