Man United interested in PSG’s Keylor Navas: report

Man United are in the hunt to sign veteran goalkeeper, Keylor Navas.

Over the last decade, the one position Manchester United have been incredibly lucky in is goalkeeper. David de Gea was once the best in the business, with Sergio Romero comfortably the best back-up. Throw in the emerging Dean Henderson and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some brilliant options.

Well, things are changing. Romero has since left after being frozen out, while the gaffer still hasn’t decided on his true number one. It seems as though Solskjaer is now looking elsewhere for his goalkeeper, which seems pretty strange to me…

Keylor Navas is now on United’s radar, according to Marca. Apparently, United are interested in signing the 34-year-old shot-stopper, though they’ll face stiff competition for his signature.

Why would PSG let him leave, I hear you ask? Well, Marca state that the Ligue 1 giants are about to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma as a free agent, leaving United, Juventus and Milan in the hunt to sign Navas.

The Costa Rican has often snuck under the radar, though his ability cannot be denied. He’s a brilliant shot-stopper who is decent with the ball at his feet, while the experience he’d bring to the table would be invaluable.

Is he better than Henderson? Right now, probably. Will he be in a few years? I’m not so sure. My honest opinion is that United should press ahead with their academy graduate, give him time to grow and make that role into his own.

Unfortunately, that also means moving on from De Gea. I also doubt Navas would want to play second fiddle to Henderson, so that probably puts this move in doubt immediately.

Would a Man United move for Keylor Navas make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
