Manchester City have completed their first signing of the summer after they announced the capture of Sevilla midfielder Jesus Navas and the winger has vowed to win trophies for the club.
The deal is expected to be worth an initial £17m and it is the first signing Manchester City have made since sacking Roberto Mancini, who was fired before the last game of the season for failing to win any trophies this season.
Navas has played for Sevilla his whole life and this is partly down to the fact he suffers from home sickness, but after seeking professional help, he has finally overcome his problem and has now agreed to move to England to play for the Manchester club.
The winger believes the deal is beneficial for both himself and his ex-club.
"I'm so happy to be joining Manchester City," he was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. "It's a good opportunity and I think both sides are happy.
"I took the decision to go to City four months ago. I still haven't spoken to Manuel Pellegrini but he is a coach that I know."
The new City signing was also questioned about other potential signings from La Liga and, in particular, the future of Malaga midfielder Isco - but the winger insisted that he has no idea what the future holds for Isco.
"I don't know if Isco will come too," Navas added. "We'll have to see. The Premier League is very fast and I'm very excited because Manchester City are putting a very good team together."
Navas then went on to thank Sevilla for the opportunity they gave him during his time at the club.
"I'm leaving Sevilla, which is a beautiful place and I'm going to a big club in England," he continued. "I'm still not comfortable speaking English though. I'll have to study now.
"The most important thing with the deal is that everyone wins. I leave Sevilla very grateful for everything and hope to achieve big things at City."
