One of Sevilla‘s best players over the last decade is set to return home.
The transfer has not been announced yet, but there is a complete agreement between Jesus Navas and Sevilla to make the right winger the latest signing of the club. After his contract ended with Manchester City on June 30, Navas always expressed his will to return home, and now he will have his wish granted.
The move has been agreed, but Sevilla have not made it official yet. That will happen when the player’s agent arrives to Sevilla to seal the deal, although it has been already reported that the winger will sign a three-year deal with the Sanchez Pizjuan outfit.
Navas debuted in Sevilla in 2003 and stayed with the first team until 2013. He moved to Manchester City ahead of the 2013-14 season, but did not have much of a role with the Citizens this past year, and decided to move back where everything began for him.
He won the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Championship as a member of Sevilla while defending Spain. And that is one of the reasons why he chose to return home, as he can be closer to the National Team ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The 31-year-old winger has had a successful career with Sevilla, and could become the player with the most official appearances in the history of the club. He currently has 393, and the club’s all-time record belongs to Pablo Blanco who featured for the side 415 times.
