Germany got eliminated from the World Cup. Bayern Munich's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer got on a little vacation and broke his leg. He will miss the remainder of the season, including the Champions League games against PSG. Alas, Bayern needs a goalie and Keylor Navas is surely one.

According to Footmercato, Bayern Munich will launch a bid for PSG goalkeeper and Costa Rica international Keylor Navas.

A different source, Martin Volkmar from the German outlet Ran Sport, reported similar information on Sunday.

As currently constructed, Bayern Munich's depth chart at the goalkeeper position is led by a season-long injured Neuer followed by 34-year-old Sven Ulreich and youngster Johannes Schenk (19). Obviously, the German giants don't feel comfortable fielding any of them.

Bayern has talented goalie Alexander Nubel playing on loan for AS Monaco this season. They will attempt to convince the Monegasque to allow Nubel to return to his parent club, but that'd need both Monaco and Nubel agreeing to that.

On top of everything, the aforementioned reports say include details about Bayern needing to "pay a fee" in the case Nubel is allowed to return to Germany, adding that "it remains to be seen whether Monaco would be willing to let Nübel go mid-season."

Alexander Nubel, Dominik Livakovic, and Keylor Navas are the goalkeepers in Bayern Munich's radar

Bayern is also exploring two alternatives: going after Croatia international Dominik Livakovic and, in the case of failing at landing him, offering a package to PSG in exchange for Keylor Navas.

In all honesty, that latter part of the report seems to be more of a joke than anything. While Navas has not played a single minute for PSG in any competitions this season, PSG won't just strengthen their Round of 16 opponent in the Champions League.

Even if Keylor Navas might want out of PSG given his current role, odds are PSG prefer to go the distance and bury him down the bench than just give him away to such a menacing and particular rival.

Navas would (should) definitely make everything in his power to force the move if a serious offer arrives in the Parisian offices considering the status of Bayern in both Germany and Europe as a whole, but it's quite hard to envision this deal taking place in January.

Navas is under contract with PSG until the summer of 2024, so the French club has no need to sell him for a low fee this January not even next summer even with the Costa Rica international being a complete afterthought.
