Keylor Navas Pushing for Napoli Move amid Obstacles

Keylor Navas is eager to join Napoli, but it’s not easy for the parties to come to terms, more so because the negotiation between the Azzurri and PSG for Fabian Ruiz hasn’t progressed much in recent days. The goalkeeper would transfer to Serie A with significantly lower wages.

As per Alfredo Pedullà, the Costa Rican international has started to gather intel on his potential next destination. He asked his teammate and rival Gianluigi Donnarumma for information about the city, its traditions, and its characteristics. The former Milan goalie was born and raised in nearby Castellammare di Stabia.

Napoli would like to bring in Keylor Navas after he rescinded his contract with PSG. Though, a loan remains possible if the Ligue 1 giants refuse to grant him a sizeable severance package. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Partenopei would give him €3.5/4M annually. He’s making more than twice such sum in France. His current team has to make up a good chunk of the difference.

The Ligue 1 champions have been pursuing Fabian Ruiz, but their offer hasn’t met the counterparty’s request yet, Marca reports (via SportMediaset). They are eyeing Valencia’s Carlos Soler as a fallback target. Moreover, they would like to find a new team for Leandro Paredes before signing a new midfielder.

It’s a clash of the titans in terms of hard bargainers, but both teams have an interest in getting the deals done. The shot-stopper can’t spend another season in the French capital after being publicly demoted. Conversely, the Azzurri need to cash in on the Spaniard this summer; otherwise, his price tag would further plummet.
