Keylor Navas might have found an option to end his rather mediocre tenure at PSG with Saudi Arabia club Al-Hilal seemingly interested in adding the goalie to their ranks, reports Le Parisien.
Al-Hilal, the Saudi club that recently acquired Neymar and maintains an interest in signing Marco Verratti in the next few days, is now monitoring the Costa Rica international to acquire the goalkeeper and make him their GK1 next season.
After a loan spell at Nottingham Forest in the second half of last season, Navas returned to PSG earlier this summer and hoped to snatch at least a reserve role as Gianluigi Donnarumma's understudy. That's no longer the case after the arrival of Arnau Tenas from Barcelona.
Al-Hilal has emerged as a potential suitor for the disgruntled South American goalkeeper. The Saudi club, now boasting Neymar and soon Marco Verratti too, is particularly intrigued by Navas's profile.
Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus is reportedly on board with Navas's potential signing to complement Al-Hilal's strengthened roster, which should facilitate a move as the Saudi club is wealthy and won't have any financial issues negatively impacting the transfer or putting it in peril of not getting completed.
The fact that the Saudi transfer window ends later than the European one, on Sep. 8 in Saudi Arabia, will also make it easier for both PSG and Al-Hilal to reach an agreement on the fee to be paid to acquire the Costa Rica international.
Navas signed with PSG in 2019 after spending time winning every possible title at Real Madrid in Spain and is under contract through June 2024.
It's always been known that PSG would rather sell their players before their contracts run out in order to recoup some money instead of losing such players for free as free agents. Navas will be the next one shown the door.
