They want Keylor Navas but the CAN'T PAY the wages he's asking for
Having lost his place at PSG, the Costa Rican could move, but he'll need to temper his expectations
The story of Keylor Navas is that of a consumate winner, but also that of one that always seems to be replaceable for his teams. The Costa Rican arrived at Paris Saint Germain with more European silverware that the club's ever had, after losing his spot to a more "fashionable" option in Thibaut Courtois. Now, he's facing that same destiny once again, as he seems to have lost his spot permanently to Gianluigi Donnarumma, and his stay in France could be about to end.
The 35-year-old goalkeeper appears not to be part of the plans for the Parisian club's coaching staff's, and as a result, he is already seeking for a move to join other teams. His destiny at the time seems to be in Italy's Serie A. According to the newspaper Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Napoli is the club vying for the services of the PSG goalkeeper. However, there is a problem to solve, and that is the salary disagreement that would prevent the deal to be done almost immediately.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, De Laurentiis is thinking about the present Chelsea goalie. The Spaniard's wages are significantly lower, and it could prove easier to cover for Napoli.
