Navas set to leave Real Madrid in swap deal

Navas set to leave Real Madrid as club agrees swap with PSG

August 28, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The Costa Rican footballer is set to part ways with Los Blancos after five seasons after being demoted to substitute goalkeeper by Zidane.

What started out as a desire by the Central American footballer is close to become a reality, as Keylor Navas is hours away from leaving Real Madrid.

Just when the former Saprissa footballer seemed to be destined to play a substitute role with Los Blancos behind Thibaut Courtois, Costa Rican newspaper La Nación and Spanish media outlet As revealed that Navas was details away from signing a hefty deal with PSG, who would improve the footballer's wages by nearly two million dollars.

The Central American newspaper revealed that, in order to keep things at ease between Navas and Real Madrid, the player's agents suggested PSG to include a player in the deal, with goalkeeper Alphonse Areola included in the negotiation.

Areola will join Los Blancos as Courtois' replacement, filling the void left by Navas as his backup. Coach Zinedine Zidane knew about Navas' wishes to leave the club, but he refused to let him go without signing his replacement first. Areola's signing fits his requirements and he allowed negotiations to go further on.

Areola has played over 100 games with Les Parisiens since 2016. This would not be his first experience in La Liga, as he spent a season on loan at Villarreal.

Areola has also played a few games for the French National Team.

Now, Zidane will try to see his desire to sign Paul Pogba satisfied before the end of the summer transfer window. The player is currently going through hard times at Manchester United, with fans abusing him racially on social media and asking for his immediate transfer
