Robert Navarro Could Reportedly Sign With Athletic Club “In The Next Few Days”
Athletic’s ongoing pursuit of Robert Navarro has been riddled with difficulty. Monaco are sure to demand a high fee for the 17-year-old and there are several bigger clubs that are said to be interested as well. The news that Navarro wants to leave Monaco has helped Athletic’s efforts and over the past two weeks reports have suggested that a deal is imminent.
Despite the stories that Navarro was close to signing with the Basques, the news went cold as the Lions traveled to Germany for a week-long training excursion. However, Sporting Director Rafa Alkorta hasn’t been idle. According to a breaking report from Radio Marca Bilbao, the club is actively working on the transfer and “Everything indicates that Robert Navarro will be an Athletic player in the next few days.”
Navarro is said to want to move to Athletic where he will have a better chance to reach the top level. Joining Athletic would likely see the starlet train under Garitano and split time between the first team and Bilbao Athletic this season. The Zurigorri are serious about trying to sign Navarro and at this point it appears as though he’s moving closer to San Mamés with each passing day.
