Navas' City move decided 'a while' ago

Jesus Navas says Manchester City’s early move to sign him this summer helped him decide to join the Premier League club despite rumoured interest from Real Madrid.

Navas, 27, is widely expected to join City in the coming days after Sevilla announced on Monday night that a deal - thought to be worth an initial €20 million plus €5.5 million in add-ons - had been agreed between the clubs.

Speaking with AS reporters as he joined up with the Spain squad before flying to the United States for La Roja’s Confederations Cup warm-up friendlies against Haiti and Ireland, the winger said his own negotiations with City had begun earlier in the year.

"We have been speaking to Manchester City for four months,” Navas said. “The decision is taken. There were rumours [about Madrid] but Manchester City came for me from the beginning and I decided a while ago. It is a good project and it was the best moment to take this step."

Navas’ manager at Eastlands next season is expected to be Manuel Pellegrini, who is set to join City once his relationship Malaga formally ends. The Andalucian attacker said he did not have direct experience of the Chilean coach but everything he had heard had been positive.

"I do not know Pellegrini personally, but people have spoken very well of him to me," Navas said. "He is a great coach."

The World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012 winner, 27, said that, for now, he was concentrating on his international duties - which could well culminate in a Confederations Cup final against hosts Brazil at the Maracana on June 30.

"I want to focus on the national team and give everything for it, it would be great to reach the final," Navas said. “Brazil must be taken into account, they have so much quality and can damage you in any moment."

Navas made his debut for Sevilla in 2003, having come through the youth system at Nervion. He has since played 393 games for the club, winning two UEFA Cups, a European Supercup, two Copa del Reys and one Spanish Supercopa.
