There is another Spanish player grabbing the headlines this morning, with Jesus Navas taking his turn to lead the media round up.

Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s Isco reports, the exciting Sevilla winger is said to be another summer target for City as they look to reclaim the title in 2013/14.

However, according to the Daily Mail, the Blues could face stiff competition from European giants Real Madrid to secure the services of the 27-year-old.

Simon Jones writes: “Sevilla would prefer their Spanish winger to join City as they believe that would guarantee a bigger fee but City will only offer around half his buy-out clause of £30million.  

“Real want Navas, 27, to replace Angel di Maria who is in talks with Paris Saint-Germain.”

Elsewhere, The Guardian’s Jamie Jackson has turned his attention to the future of Argentinian frontman Carlos Tevez.

The striker, who grabbed 17 goals for City in all competitions last season, has been linked with a range of clubs in recent weeks including Monaco and Juventus.

Jackson reports: “The striker is thought to have an open mind regarding whether to remain at the club he joined four years ago from Manchester United and where he is among the highest paid players, with a reported salary of around £250,000 a week.

“As there is only a year remaining on Tevez's contract, City's options are to listen to offers for him, decide to prolong the 29-year-old's deal to protect his value, or refuse to extend his contract.”

Finally, after signing a contract extension to keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2017, Sergio Aguero has been speaking to the Argentinian media about speculation linking him with Real Madrid.


His comments will further endear him to City fans around the globe, as he speaks with enthusiasm about his future at the club.  

Charles Perrin quotes Sergio in the Daily Express: "They were only rumours. I have a commitment at Manchester City, which is a great club," the Argentine told the media in his homeland.

"I am happy to be part of a team that is growing up very fast. I am happy in Manchester, two years have gone by and I expect that we can do big things in the next few years.”
