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).
On 20 August 2009, Navarro joined River Plate on loan from Napoli. 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).
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.
