Jesus Navas started his career with the La Liga giants
Navas started his career in football at Sevilla‘s youth side, playing in the southern city since 2000.
However, he joined money-bags City in 2013 after a decade in the La Liga giant’s first-team squad – before calling time at Eastlands in May this year.
The Spaniard made an incredible 394 appearances in all competitions for Sevilla, netting 34 times.
His performances caught the attention of Man City, who spent £15million in bringing him to the Premier League.
Navas quickly made an impression in Manchester, winning the Premier League in his debut season, including 30 appearances that season in the league.
However, after two more years as an integral member of the City squad, he slipped down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola last season.
