Jesús Navas’ much desired return home to Sevilla has taken a step closer, with club president José Castro confirming today that the 31-year-old fan favourite is on the club’s agenda this summer.
Navas has long been linked with a move back to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, where he spent 13 years before a £14.9 million move to Manchester City in 2013, and it was recently claimed that he has signed up his young son at a school in the region.
There have been other reports that Serie A club Roma, who have recruited Sevilla’s famed sporting director Monchi, will rival the Spanish club for Navas, but it appears that his heart is set on a return to Andalusia.
And it will be music to his ears that club president José Castro confirmed today that a return for Navas is in the thoughts of club management.
“Jesús Navas – currently at Manchester City – may be one of the players our management works on. His contract is ending and this is his home for life,” Castro told reporters in Spain.
Castro didn’t want to divert attention from Sevilla’s current campaign and refused to speculate further on Navas returning, but all signs point to a return home for the prodigal son when his Manchester City deal expires in June.
