Donnarumma agrees with Navas, goalkeeping situation must change next season

Among the (too) many projects that PSG will have to tackle this summer, that of the goalkeeper position is at the top of the list. And for once in this club, everyone seems to agree on the observation: impossible to make a second season by following this policy of alternating between Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas.

The first to have admitted it is none other than the Costa Rican, after the 3-0 victory at Angers during the 33rd day. If he said he was happy in Paris, the former Madridista still expected that things had to “change in one way or another”. Passed number 1 bis in the hierarchy, despite the tightrope numbers of Mauricio Pochettino – who was not to put a goalkeeper of the caliber of Donnarumma in the legs of his player last summer – every weekend in conference of press, Navas does not wish to experience such a situation again next year.

Donnarumma does not say anything else

No more than the Italian international, moreover, who made more or less the same media release as his teammate, Sunday, in the columns of Sky Sport. “With Navas, I have an excellent relationship but, as he also said, it has not been easy to live with, neither for him nor for me. Surely things have to change,” said the 2021 European champion.

Questioned by the same Italian media after the title of champion of France won on Saturday against Lens, Leonardo first defended his choice to recruit the former Milan goalkeeper when he was coming to the end of his contract. “The situation has been clear from the start. We had a goalkeeper in Navas who was doing very well and we were very happy. Donnarumma has become one of the strongest goalkeepers in the world, it was an operation to be done despite the presence of Navas ”, justified Leo at the microphone of Sky Sport.

Navas, a big salary and two years of contract

But, according to the Parisian sports director, the time may have come to decide on the spot. “You have to manage them and we tried to give rhythm and continuity to both of them. They know everything clearly: when the time comes, we will have no problem making a decision, he assured. If there is a good one for everyone, we will consider it. »

If the balance leans more towards the future, and therefore towards Donnarumma, we will still have to find a way out for Navas (and his million euros gross monthly), to whom there are still two years of contract. While there is no doubt that many clubs would be happy to have such a goalkeeper in their ranks, not sure that Navas will be ready to make a big effort on his side.
