One of the legendary goalkeepers in the Concacaf area is the Costa Rican, Keylor Navas, who had a brilliant time at Real Madrid and currently plays for Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. The World Cup player in Qatar 2022 knows that he is in the twilight of his career, therefore he knows that sooner or later he will return to the American continent.

In an interview for the official Nottingham Forest channel, the stopper admitted that he is a big fan of Mexican soccer and made it clear that he would like to wear the Águilas del América jersey one day.

“Mexico has great teams for me, I would like to play for América, really, yes,” commented the former Paris Saint Germain player.

With the departure of Guillermo Ochoa to Serie A, the rumors began about a possible signing of Navas for the Americanista team, but it all remained that way and there were no negotiation to come to the Liga MX. In the end, the Coapa side ended up opting to give Óscar Jiménez the opportunity and Luis Malagón is currently the starter in the Fernando el ‘Tano’ Ortiz scheme.

Navas emerged from the youth team of Saprissa and under the administration of businessman Jorge Vergara established himself in the first team. In 2005, the Central American goalkeeper won the Concacaf Champions League after defeating the Pumas of UNAM in the final. Subsequently, he has worn the shirts of Albacete, Levante, Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and is currently a member of Nottingham Forest. A very decent career that may have another step still to be taken.
