Real and PSG complete swap deal

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed a deadline day swap deal with goalkeepers Keylor Navas and Alphonse Areola heading in opposite directions.

Navas joined the 13-time European champions from Levante in 2014 and was the first-choice stopper as Los Blancos won three consecutive Champions League titles.
 
 
However, the Costa Rican lost his place in the starting XI to Thibaut Courtois and PSG have now reportedly forked out around €15 million, with their goalkeeper Alphonse Areola moving to the Spanish capital on loan for the rest of the season.

"I’m really excited to sign for Paris Saint-Germain. After my experience in Spain, I’m coming to France with high hopes," Navas told the club's website.
 
"Paris Saint-Germain is a very prestigious club in Latin America and I am keen to be part of the adventure that started several years ago.
 
"I will do everything I can to help PSG win new titles, bringing all my experience and professionalism.
 
"And I will also try to win the hearts of the Parisian fans, famous throughout Europe for their passion."
