Keylor Navas has decided to remain at PSG, even though the club, under Luis Enrique's leadership, aimed to strengthen every position during the 2023 summer transfer window. This includes the goalkeeper role, where Navas is expected to serve as the backup for Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Navas' journey at Paris Saint-Germain began well, but the summer of 2021 marked a significant turning point. The arrival of Gianluigi Donnarumma led to a rotation, ultimately resulting in Christophe Galtier favoring the Italian goalkeeper. As a result, Navas spent the 2022/2023 season on loan at Nottingham Forest.

Returning to PSG this summer, Navas will be working under a new coach, Luis Enrique, who aims to create competition in all positions. Enrique appreciates Navas, particularly his skillful footwork, which is of great importance to the Spanish coach. This competitive environment means that Navas could still see playing time under the Parisian skies in his final contract year. As Le Parisien reports, "The coach will not hesitate to give Navas playing time if he deems him suitable for the style of play he desires."

Notably, PSG has included Navas in their UEFA Champions League squad for the upcoming season, despite initial intentions to let him go at the start of the summer.

Despite interest and lucrative offers during the summer transfer window, including inquiries from Al-Hilal, Navas turned down these opportunities, opting to stay with PSG rather than pursue a different career path, even with more financially attractive prospects on the table.
