PSG has managed to send Keylor Navas on a six-month loan to Nottingham Forest. Not without a masterstroke made by Luis Campos, soccer advisor of the Parisian club.
After La Liga and Ligue 1, Keylor Navas will discover the Premier League. In the last moments of the winter mercato, Paris Saint-Germain announced the loan without option to buy its goalkeeper to Nottingham Forest, the current thirteenth of the English Championship. The former teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo played his last game for Paris against Cassel (7-0), in the round of 16 of the French Cup, last week.
“Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas joins Nottingham Forest FC until the end of the 2022-2023 season on a loan deal without an option to buy. Paris Saint-Germain wishes Keylor every success for the rest of his season with Nottingham Forest,” PSG wrote on its official website. But to achieve this operation, it was necessary to dig deep, which Luis Campos has succeeded.
PSG Mercato : Campos’ plan to close the loan of Keylor Navas
While Nottingham Forest only offered to get Keylor Navas on loan, Paris Saint-Germain, which had already reached its quota of eight loan players, had to find a solution to allow the 36-year-old goalkeeper to find playing time in the Premier League. According to French sources, Christophe Galtier had asked Luis Campos to bring back the German attacking midfielder Julian Draxler, on loan at Benfica Lisbon.
In the end, no player returned to Paris, but Campos managed to turn a loan into a permanent transfer during the season. Indeed, PSG has reached an agreement with Athletic Bilbao for a permanent transfer of Ander Herrera. The Spanish club has lifted the purchase option of the 33-year-old midfielder, according to information collected by the daily Team. With the departure of Navas, Sergio Rico becomes the No. 2 goalkeeper of Paris SG behind Gianluigi Donnarumma.
