His approach and his experience count for this kind of meeting. Since his arrival in 2019 from Real Madrid, Navas is also regularly cited as one of the best recruits of PSG of the Qatari era.
“I am very happy because I was really welcomed, he recalls. I remember my debut at the Parc des Princes during my first appearance. I was entitled to a standing ovation from the stadium and it marked the beginning of a beautiful communion with the Parisian fans. They identified with me and I am very grateful to them. “
At 34, the Costa Rican international (92 caps) imagines himself settling for a long time in Paris. He is under contract until 2023 but does not set a deadline. Could he stay there until the end of his career? “Honestly, I don’t know,” he replies.
“We will continue to take it step by step,” he continues. “It is obvious that I am very happy to be here and that I will stay until he (the leaders) wish. They don’t want me anymore, I should go, hey, hey! But I am very happy here, fulfilled and I am enjoying being in Paris 100%. I want to play PSG for a long time because I feel good physically and mentally . “
