Jesus Navas could return to Sevilla for nothing this summer as the Manchester City winger’s child has been enrolled at a school in his hometown.
Navas’ contract with City expires at the end of the season, and AS reports he has no intention of renewing it after just seven full appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side in 2016-17.
As such, the 31-year-old believes the time has come to head back to Sevilla, who “await him with open arms”.
The newspaper explains talks between both parties are “ongoing”, with the player’s son to be schooled in his native Los Palacios from September.
Navas made 391 appearances for the Andalusians between 2003 and 2013, winning two UEFA Cups in 2005 and 2006, before joining City for €20m.
He was also part of the Spain teams that won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012, although homesickness prevented him from representing La Roja at Euro 2008, while he has been out of the national-team picture since 2014.
Navas is also endorsed by New Balance, Sevilla’s kit manufacturers.
