PSG boss Galtier admits Navas could leave amid reported Forest interest
PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier is unsure if he can retain goalkeeper Keylor Navas amid reported interest from Premier League club Nottingham Forest.
With the January transfer window closing soon, the 36-year-old Navas has been linked with a move after losing his starting position to Italy's European Championship-winning goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma. Navas only plays in the French Cup.
"Keylor is a great competitor. He has been exemplary in terms of his work since the start of the season. I have total faith in him," Galtier said Friday. "But you have to consider what he's feeling and the directors and president are attentive to his needs."
French sports daily L'Equipe's website reported Friday that the Costa Rica international has agreed to terms with Forest.
Galtier suggested he would not try to block a move.
"Because of the person he is and his career, we must 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 has played 108 games for the French champions. He was outstanding during 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.
