Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Navarro started his career with Argentinos Juniors in 2004. In 2007, he was sold to Italian Serie A side SSC Napoli for a fee of around 5 million US dollars, the biggest amount received by the Argentine club since Diego Maradona's transfer in 1981 (around 10 million of the same coin).[1]

On 20 August 2009, Navarro joined River Plate on loan from Napoli.[2] However, he played only 4 games in River. For the 2010–11 Argentine Primera División season, Navarro returned to Argentinos Juniors (defending champions of the Argentine league).[1][3][4][5]

National team[edit]

Navarro was part of the Argentina Under-20 squad that won the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship title. He also won a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics. He was not part of the original squad, but received the call-up to replace injured goalkeeper Oscar Ustari during the tournament.
