Manchester City’s latest recruit Jesus Navas has revealed that, although he had other high profile suitors, he had decided on coming to the Etihad in a bid to help the club upset the odds a number of months ago.
Navas has played at Sevilla throughout his professional career but now, after ten years with the La Liga club he has decided that he needs a new challenge to take his game to the next level and, despite apparently having the option to remain in Spain, he was convinced that a £23million move to Manchester was his best bet. “We’ve been talking with Manchester City for four months. The decision is taken,” the 27-year old said. “There had been rumours (about Real Madrid), but Manchester City were in from the start and I had decided some time ago. It’s a good project and it was the moment to make the step.”
