Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has left the club for French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

His transfer was confirmed earlier on Monday.

Keylor Navas has joined PSG in a €13m deal, while PSG shot stopper Alphonso Areola has moved in the other direction.

Areola will spend this season on loan at Real Madrid as part of the deal that took Costa Rican international goalkeeper Keylor Navas to the Parc des Princes.

Keylor Navas had to leave Real Madrid this summer after he was informed by manager Zinedine Zidane that Thibaut Courtois would be the first choice goalkeeper at the club this season.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has been at Real Madrid since the summer of 2014 and he has made over 100 appearances for the Los Merengues.

He joined Real Madrid shortly after the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

Keylor Navas was the star of the Costa Rica team that reached the quarterfinals of that tournament.

During his time at Real Madrid, Keylor Navas won three Champions League titles as well as the 2016/17 Spanish La Liga title.

One player that would be staying at Real Madrid is Welsh international star Gareth Bale who came close to leaving the club earlier this summer.
