After a season where the alternation in goal between Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas was not a great success, Paris Saint-Germain have appointed a starting goalkeeper for next season.
Without surprise, The Team reveals this Saturday that this status will go to Donnarumma, who has urged its leaders to be decided definitively on numerous occasions in recent weeks. Arrived for free last summer at the end of his contract at AC Milan, the Italian, crowned with the status of best player in the Euro, shared the playing time with Navas, who was coming out of two XXL seasons, during of the last few months.
Despite his blunder which precipitated elimination against Real Madrid in the knockout stages of the Champions League, the Transalpin embodies the future (23 years old, against 35 for his competitor) and it is therefore logical that he has was preferred to Navas. For his part, despite a current contract until June 2024, the Costa Rican should be asked to pack his bags. Its sale price is estimated at 10 million euros, an accessible amount.
On the other hand, nothing says that the former doorman of Real Madrid will wish to change air and make a cross on his imposing salary (about 1 M€ gross per month). Above all, The Team takes care to specify that this is the decision of the leaders. But, with the vagueness surrounding the future of sporting director Leonardo and coach Mauricio Pochettino, it cannot be ruled out that a different hierarchy will be advocated by the new team, if necessary. The daily specifies that PSG would ideally like to clean up this position and therefore also separate from replacements Sergio Rico, Marcin Bulka and Alphonse Areola, all on loan this season. If it is not certain that Mallorca retain the first, Nice and West Ham could however exercise the respective purchase option of the last two named.
If Donnarumma is number 1 next season, we must keep Keylor Navas in number 2, we absolutely must not part with him, he is too important at PSG. pic.twitter.com/Q7NN0cQISD
