Jesus Navas To Join City

Another top Spanish international is moving to the English Premier League from La Liga.

Sevilla winger Jesus Navas will sign for Manchester City in the coming days, after the club where he has played for 10 years agreed to sell him to the former English champions.

The transfer fee for the 27-year-old European and World Cup champion is reportedly £24 million.

"Sevilla FC has accepted the English club's offer, taking into account the wishes of the player, who will have to pass a medical," Sevilla said on their website.

"Navas ... wants to continue his successful sporting career in English football, more precisely at a club at which he can continue to develop as a footballer, as he has publicly stated on various occasions in recent months."

In Navas, City are buying a lightning fast player with experience at the highest level in football.

He is a tricky and direct runner, and no player created more chances from open play than he did during the last La Liga campaign.

The only question marks over Navas’ head are his temperament- he has notoriously been prone to bouts of homesickness during his career- and his finishing.

He did not score a single goal for Sevilla all season long, and so while Navas will add genuine quality to a City squad already boasting his friend and international team-mate, David Silva, the Etihad club will hope he marries greater efficiency in front of goal to his newfound confidence to travel.
