Real Madrid are bound to go through a major roster overhaul in the summer, and it looks like Keylor Navas may be yet another one of the guys that’ll be on his way out of the team.
Zinedine Zidane backed Navas throughout his entire first spell with the team, but now, the Frenchman is ready to move on from Navas and go with Thibaut Courtois as his goalkeeper, with Florentino Perez pushing Navas towards the exit.
Navas was one of the most important pieces of that almighty Real Madrid squad that completely dominated Europe and he clearly made Los Blancos stop missing Iker Casillas.
However, Goal reported that there’s just no way that he’ll stay with the team beyond this season, and while Juventus was reportedly interested in his services, it looks like as Paris Saint-Germain is now the frontrunner to land him.
With Gianluigi Buffon reportedly set to call it a day and hang the cleats at the end of the season, and Manchester United reluctant to sell David De Gea, the Costa Rican would be their top target for the summer.

Keylor is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and it’s pretty clear that he deserves to play for a top-tier European club while he’s still on his prime.
Moreover, with PSG’s tough luck in the UEFA Champions League, landing a stopper of the likes of Navas will definitely be a step in the right direction towards European domination.
Navas was bound to prove his worth at Real Madrid and didn’t want to give up on his dream to retire with the club and fight for his spot as a starter, especially with Courtois struggling earlier in the year.
Nonetheless, it feels as if he’s never going to get the respect and recognition he deserves at Santiago Bernabeu, so a change of airs is due for him.
