Manchester City have officially announced that winger Jesus Navas is their latest new signing.

It’s been approximately twelve days since Sevilla and City agreed a deal for Navas, but the finishing touches to the paperwork were delayed due to Navas being on tour in the United States with the Spanish national team for two friendlies prior to the Confederations Cup later this week.

But Navas was able to pass his medical in the United States allowing City to finalize the deal.

MOREWhat Jesus Navas means for Manchester City, according to Matt Jones.

The 27-year-old winger has won 23 caps with Spain, and has made 393 appearances for Sevilla. Navas is pictured below with New York City FC Director of Football Claudio Reyna:

EPL Talk’s Kartik Krishnaiyer and I had a chance to watch Jesus Navas in person this past weekend in the friendly between Spain and Haiti in Miami. While it’s just one game, Navas was not impressive at all and was unable to dribble past the Haiti left back.

In the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons at Sevilla, Navas was my favorite player to watch in La Liga when he bombed down the wings for the Spanish club side. He was the type of game changer that was incredible to watch. But whether he can regain that form, we’ll have to wait and see.

Manchester City’s transfer fee they paid to sign Jesus Navas is believed to be around £15 million.

What’s your opinion? Will Navas be a hit or a flop in the Premier League next season at City? Post your prediction and the reason why in the comments section below.

    July 1st! Hey FIFA…it’s supposed to start July 1st…wtf is all this signing players…announcing them etc…not in the window!!

    What’s the point? Ridiculous…

  5. Conor Canavan says:

    he’s better than nasri and sinclair. he should start for them. good crosser and dribbler, but tends to drift out of games.

  6. Tams Kalio says:

    He is a great winger. One of the few true wingers left in the game that can dribble very well,cross the ball and score. But I hope his “tragic flaw” doesn’t resurface:”The tendency to get home sick”!!!!!!

  7. Ronaldo says:

    Hey @Dust, if a contract of a player is over, anyone can buy it in anytime.
