Sevilla have confirmed they have reached a deal with Manchester City over the transfer of winger Jesus Navas, Sky
The fee for the 27-year-old is said to be in the region of £17m with Navas set to join compatriot David Silva under new manager Manuel Pellegrini, with Pellegrini to be confirmed as successor to Roberto Mancini in the near future.
A statement on Sevilla’s website read: “Sevilla FC has accepted the English club’s offer, taking into account the wishes of the player, who will have to pass a medical.
“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 his time at Sevilla, Navas won the UEFA Cup in 2006 and 2007 and the Copa del Rey on two occasions. He was also part of the Spain squads that won the World Cup in 2010 and the European Championships in 2012, having banished the travel anxiety that led to him missing out on the Euro 2008 victory. He has 22 caps for La Roja.
