The Paris Saint-Germain are trying to resolve their goalkeeping situation as manager Christophe Galtier has gone with Gianluigi Donnarumma as the starter, leaving Keylor Navas as the backup.
However, Navas could be on the verge of an exit as the 35-year-old searches for more minutes to prepare for the FIFA World Cup in November. L’Equipe reported on Saturday that the Costa Rica international has agreed to join Napoli.
It is now up to the two clubs to agree on how they want to work out a transfer. The French publication adds three possibilities to complete this departure: a permanent transfer, a loan with an option to buy or include Navas in the transfer of Fabian Ruiz.
Should both clubs agree to a loan deal, PSG will likely have to help Napoli pay Navas’ salary, around €1 million monthly. Navas still has two years left on his current contract, so it will be interesting to see how much the Serie A club will pay in the event of a permanent transfer.
Furthermore, if Navas exits, Sergio Rico will remain with the capital club and serve as the backup to Donnarumma.
