The goalkeeper war is over at PSG. While Mauricio Pochettino rotated between Keylor Navas and Gianluigi Donnarumma last season, this is not the case for Christophe Galtier who preferred to line up the Italian as number 1 goalkeeper. But internally, Donnarumma couldn’t flourish because of the competition with Keylor Navas.
Let it go. Keylor Navas left on loan Nottingham Forest, without a purchase option during this winter transfer window. A way for the PSG to save money on the one hand, half of the Costa Rican’s salary being paid for by the club with two Champions League titles and on the other hand to mentally release Gianluigi Donnarumma.
As pointed out The Team following the match between PSG and Toujouse, this departure from Keylor Navas did not seem to release the Italian goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma. Evidenced by his footwork still largely perfectible as well as the wall he placed on the free kick scored by Van Den Boomen. The Toulousain, right-handed, had no trouble passing the ball to the left of the Parisian wall to deceive Donnarumma, taken on the wrong foot. A rather incomprehensible error for a goalkeeper of this level.

…for the moment
On his line, however, the Italian remains unbeatable. The save he made at the very end of the match against Anthony Rouault is a parade he is used to. But we will certainly have to wait another month to see the positive effects of the departure of Keylor Navas on the performance of Gianluigi Donnarumma.
