Manchester City winger Jesus Navas has admitted he would like to one day return to Sevilla, possibly to end his career.
Navas left Ramon Sanchez Pizjaun for the Etihad Stadium in the summer of 2013 and ahead of City’s Champions League game against Barcelona, has spoken to Marca.
After discussing the match itself, talk turned to his impressions of England and how the Spain international views his long-term future.
“It would be nice to finish my career at Sevilla,” he admitted.
“They’re the club that gave me everything and it would be a nice way to end.
“Sevilla this season have options to reach the Champions League, but it will be difficult.”
Asked about his status with the national team, having missed out on recent squads, he confirmed he was eager to get back into the fold.
“I’m happy with my team and I’m working to return for La Roja, of course,” he acknowledged.
“I have always been in the group of Vicente del Bosque and I’ll give everything to come back.
“My idea is to go and work every day for a place in the squad. I am very excited.”
The interview concluded with Navas asked about his first season in the Premier League, and if there was anything he missed about living in Spain.
“You’d have to ask others [about how he has done at City]. But I’m comfortable, although there’s always room to improve. I’d say 8 out of 10,” he replied.
“I don’t miss anything about the football in Spain. The pace here is exciting and so are the games, either playing or watching. But I do miss the weather, especially.”
