Galtier admits goalkeeper Keylor Navas could leave PSG

PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier is unsure if he can keep goalkeeper Keylor Navas amid reported interest from Premier League club Nottingham Forest.

With the January transfer window closing soon, Navas, 36, has been linked with a move after losing his starting position to Italian European Championship-winning goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Navas only plays in the Coupe de France.

“Keylor is a great competitor. He has been exemplary in his work since the start of the season. I have complete confidence in him,” Galtier said on Friday. “But you have to consider how he feels and the directors and the chairman are listening to his needs.”

The website of French sports daily L’Equipe reported on Friday that the Costa Rican international had agreed terms with Forest.

Galtier suggested he wouldn’t try to block a move.

“Because of the person he is and his career, we have to respect him and listen to him,” he said.

Navas joined PSG in 2019 from Real Madrid, where he won the Champions League three times, and played 108 games for the French champions. He was exceptional in the 2020-21 season, when he stood out with remarkable performances in the Champions League against Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

Navas has played 110 times for Costa Rica.
