Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain, with the Costa Rican currently in advanced talks with the Ligue 1 giants.
In fact, the 32-year-old could travel to Paris in the next couple of days to sign his contract and be presented as a PSG player.
La Nacion, a newspaper in Costa Rica, first reported the information and MARCA have since been able to confirm.
Keylor recognises that he will have a better chance of playing first-team minutes at PSG than he would have had at Real Madrid, particularly with Zinedine Zidane having made clear that Thibaut Courtois is his No.1 option.
Thomas Tuchel, PSG‘s head coach, is keen to bring Keylor in as his No.1, while the Costa Rican will be able to earn a higher salary than what he was earning in Madrid. These two factors were key in Keylor agreeing to the move.
Should this deal go through, Real Madrid will almost certainly make a move for a backup goalkeeper in the final days of the transfer window, especially as they already have Andriy Lunin and Luca Zidane out on loan to Real Valladolid and Racing Santander respectively.
