Reports say that Al-Nassr is working on a deal to bring Keylor Navas from PSG to the club so that he can play with Cristiano Ronaldo, who used to play for them.
The regular goalie, David Ospina, hurt his elbow. Since the Colombian will be out for a while, manager Rudi Garcia is thought to have asked for a replacement, and Navas is thought to be the Al-Nassr manager’s top choice.
Ronaldo has been busy getting ready for his first game for the leaders of the Saudi Pro-League. His first game could be against Lionel Messi, an old rival, in a friendly that one investor has already bid £2.2 million to see.
It was said that Eden Hazard was close to joining the Saudi Pro-League, but Marca says that Costa Rican player Navas could be the new player at Al-Nassr.
Former Arsenal and Napoli goalie David Ospina is thought to have broken his elbow in the club’s most recent game, a 0-0 draw with Al-Shaddab on Saturday. He will be out for at least six weeks.
The former Real Madrid goalkeeper will be in Saudi Arabia this week for PSG’s game against a Saudi All-Stars team that will include the famous Portuguese player.
If you look at PSG since Gianluigi Donnarumma joined in 2021, Navas has dropped down the ranks and is now just the cup keeper.
The three-time Champions League winner is under contract with the French giants until June 2023. He probably won’t want to give up any possible pay over the next six months, but an offer from Al-Nassr is likely to be just as good.
But it is thought that PSG’s sporting director Luis Campos wants to be paid for letting his back-up goalie leave before the end of his contract. This is something that the Saudi Pro-League team doesn’t like.
It’s not just the 36-year-old that Garcia’s team is looking at, though. They are looking for a new goalkeeper and moving faster.
The Al-Wheda stopper Munir is also being thought about, but he is not thought to be very important in the hunt for Navas.
Munir has also played in La Liga, but he doesn’t have as many awards to show for it. He has played for Numancia and Malaga.
Al-Nassr is currently in first place in the league, having scored 27 goals, more than any other team, and conceding just 6 goals, tied for first place. Ospina has been a great choice in goal for the club.
