New Manchester City signing Jesus Navas says winning the Champions League is his No.1 priority after joining the Premier League runners-up from Sevilla.
The World Cup and European Championship winner with Spain has joined for an undisclosed fee and becomes City's second addition of the summer transfer window after Brazilian Fernandinho joined from Shakhtar Donetsk last week.
Navas, who scored 34 goals in 393 appearances for Sevilla and won successive UEFA Cups in 2006 and 2007, will provide City with a focal point on the wing from next season, a campaign expected to be led by Manuel Pellegrini, who left Malaga at the end of last term.
"Manchester City is an exciting project and this is the right moment for me to take this step. I'm very happy with the opportunity and the decision," Navas said in his first interview signing joining the 2011/12 league champions.
"The Premier League is a competition where the football is very fast and will suit the way I play. I'm really looking forward to it.
"I'm going to a great club in England and I want to continue developing my game there. The Club has put a lot of faith in me and I want to repay them out on the pitch."
"Individually above all [City] have so many good players, and the idea of playing there with such amazing players and fighting for a title, because I we have a good team to do that," he added.
"Everything about football in England is exciting. It's fast, it's end-to-end. And it was an idea I had, to be able to come to the Premier League to enjoy this kind of game.
"I love what I do which is to play football, and for me the most important thing is to enjoy it as much as possible because we have a great squad.
"I have won some important titles with Sevilla, but the Champions League is something you always have in mind. And also to enjoy the Premier League and have a really strong year."
The 27 year old has conquered homesickness in order to join City after years of having his career shackled by the anxiety of leaving his home in Sevilla. He defied such concern after traveling to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where he helped Spain to victory in the final against Netherlands.
