It is a striking scene which took place this Friday morning on the lawn of the Camp des Loges.
And which necessarily takes on a particular dimension when we know the situation of Keylor Navas.
While his partners arrived one after the other to start the day's training, the Costa Rican goalkeeper spoke for long seconds with Luis Campos, PSG football adviser.
Away from the group, the two exchanged calmly, with the manager slapping the player in the face and flashing a small smile when Navas appeared to ask him something.
If it is impossible to know the precise content of this discussion, we imagine that there was much talk about the future of Keylor Navas and his possible departure from PSG by January 31, the date of the closing of the transfer window.
Confined to a substitute role, the 36-year-old Costa Rican (under contract until June 2024) wishes to leave the Parisian club and he most certainly repeated his desires elsewhere in person to Luis Campos this Friday morning.
Perhaps he also took the opportunity to tell him of his desire to continue his career in the Premier League and more specifically at Nottingham Forest.
For a week, the English club has set its sights on the former Real Madrid goalkeeper who sees a transfer to the 13th in the English championship.
As announced by L'Equipe, the Costa Rican has agreed to join the promoted and his intention is to be transferred.
For Navas, a departure to Nottingham would notably respond to his desire to find a starting place in a club of the five major European championships after having been forced to play understudy for Gianluigi Donnarumma in recent months.
“We must respect him and listen to him”
In the player's entourage, there is cautious optimism about the conclusion of this file while discussions between PSG and Nottingham Forest have continued in recent hours.
The question of the salary of the three-time Champions League winner, whose market value is estimated at 5 million euros, will be one of the issues in these exchanges, Navas earning 12 million euros a year.
Asked about the situation of his second goalkeeper this Friday at a press conference, Christophe Galtier made it clear that the club would listen to the Costa Rican, suggesting that a departure could take place in the days to come.
“Keylor is a great competitor, he has been exemplary at work since the start of the season, admitted the Parisian coach.
He was appointed goalkeeper for the Coupe de France, I have complete confidence in him.
There is also what he feels.
The sports management is very attentive to what Keylor wants to do.
But with regard to the man and his career, we must respect him and listen to him.
Today, no decision has been made regarding his future but we will see what will happen in four days.
