Manchester City’s Jesus Navas could be targeted for a return to Sevilla in the summer transfer window, says the club’s president Jose Castro.
The winger started his career at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium when he was just 14-years-old, going on to record over 250 first team appearances in a Sevilla shirt.
Navas has struggled for game time since Pep Guardiola took over as Sky Blues manager, however, and with his current deal nearly up he would present an enticing signing as Jorge Sampaoli’s side looks to make the step up into the Champions League.
“Jesus Navas could be one of the players the club work on. He’s out of contract [in the summer] and has given his life to this club,” Castro told the media
“We’re working on many players and of course he could be an option, but we don’t want to divert attention away from the present.
“Right now we have to back the squad we have, which is getting good results. This is the squad that has to hit the target we’ve set out, which is to be in the Champions League.”
With two Premier League starts to his name in 2016-17, Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno could also be looking at a move in the looming window, yet any rumours linking him back to Sevilla were labelled as false by Castro.
“It’s information that has come out that doesn’t have any truth. I am not aware of that,” he added.
