Creative and pacy winger

Spanish winger Jesus Navas completed his move to City from Sevilla in June 2013. 


Blessed with electric pace, Navas is one of the fastest wide men in the Premier League and has regularly topped the ‘chances created’ columns since joining the Blues and the diminutive winger created 76 chances for his teammates in the 2012/13 league campaign, which was the fifth highest total in La Liga.


Navas arrived with an impressive medal collection, too including two UEFA Cups, a UEFA Super Cup, two Copa del Rey titles and the Spanish Super Cup during his time at Sevilla.


He also boasts World Cup and European Championship medals with Spain for whom he has won 35 cap including an appearance from the bench in the 2010 World Cup final.


Navas began his career at the age of 15 when he joined Sevilla’s youth programme and he was handed his senior debut just two years later – coming off the bench against Espanyol in November 2003.


A sprinkling of first team appearances followed that season, alongside a regular place for Sevilla B in Spain’s third tier. 

Boss Joaquin Caparros had seen enough and the youngster became a permanent fixture in the first team the following season, going on to chalk up 393 appearances for his home town club.


Jesus celebrated his first season in sky blue by winning the Premier League title and the Capital One Cup, where he scored one of City’s goals in a 3-1 win over Sunderland at Wembley.


His record of 48 appearances, six goals and 13 assists made him one of the most productive members of Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.


Navas’ second season saw him play 45 times, creating 11 more for his team-mates but only finding the back of the net once.


His third campaign saw him play 50 times in all competitions, creating 11 goals and scoring one.


Navas was also an integral member of the side that lifted the 2016 Capital One Cup for the second time in three years, scoring in the penalty shoot-out and collecting his second winner’s medal in the competition.


A tireless worker for the team, Navas has rarely missed a game in three years at City, averaging 48 games in all competitions each season and has featured regularly in Pep Guardioila's
