Jesus Navas wants City to target £15m-rated Spaniard

Published Add your comment

Manchester City star Jesus Navas had admitted he would welcome the arrival of compatriot Iker Casillas at the Etihad Stadium.

Navas, who joined City from Spanish side Sevilla in the summer, has raised the pressure on current goalkeeper Joe Hart - who has been out of form recently - by saying Spain's number one would be a good addition to the squad.

The 27-year-old, speaking to The Sun said: “You always want the best players in your team. They are important.

“We all know what a great goalkeeper Iker is and the importance he has within the team.

“At City we have great goalkeepers but Iker would be a great addition.”

Casillas had been linked with a summer move to Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester City before the summer transfer window slammed shut on Monday - following Diego Lopez's move to the Bernabeu Stadium at the end of January.

Lopez had originally been signed to deputise for Casillas while he was recovering from a fractured left hand that saw him ruled out for eight to 12 weeks.

However Casillas, who is reportedly available for £15million, has remained on the substitutes' bench for the start of the season as Lopez continues to impress for the La Liga giants.
