Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Keylor Navas has been explaining where he’d like to be playing next season. The 36-year-old joined the Reds from PSG during the summer but he won’t stay beyond this season and will likely leave France too.
Navas has made 10 appearances since arriving at Forest. He’s conceding 19 goals during that period managing to keep a single clean sheet between the posts.
Dean Henderson is Forest’s number-one goalkeeper. He’s currently returned to training after an injury and it will be interesting to see what Steve Cooper does once he’s match fit.
The Reds won’t be signing Navas on a permanent deal. He earns around £200,000-a-week and Forest will definitely target a younger goalkeeper during the summer transfer window.
Now, in an interview with Medio Tempo, Navas has explained where he’d like to play in the future. He said: “Mexico has great teams, for me. I would like to play for Club America. That’s the truth.”
Navas has enjoyed a very colourful career. He’s won three Champions League titles with Real Madrid and also played over 100 times for Costa Rica.
Forest goalkeeper Navas on where he’d like to play next season
This won’t really come as a shock to Forest fans. Navas turning out for the Reds was always going to be a short-term fix and it’s no surprise that he will return to PSG in the summer.
Regardless of what league Forest are playing during 2023/24, the Reds will need reinforcements. A goalkeeper will be at the top of the list, with Henderson likely to be a target if they can stay up.
Navas arrived at Forest during a time when they were desperate for a goalkeeper. He won the Man of the Match accolade on his debut against Leeds and has enjoyed some good moments.
After his debut, he earned praise from Neco Williams. The Welshman called the goalkeeper ‘massive’ for several quality saves and it’s clear that he’s still got some quality left in the tank.
