Sevilla winger Jesus Navas looks set to join Premier League runners-up Manchester City this summer according to Marca.

Manchester City’s directors Ferran Sorriano and Txiki Bergenstein were spotted in Seville on Thursday, working on a deal for Navas with Sevilla sports director, Monchi.

But despite the meeting, their appears to be a difference of opinion between the two camps, with Sevilla asking for 30 million euros but Manchester City not prepared to go over 24 million euros.

The stand-off could cause City to miss out on one of new manager Manuel Pellegrini’s preferred summer signings.

It appears City have already declined to bid for Malaga playmaker Isco, a player Pellegrini had asked City to sign.

Their is also a reported interest from Liverpool, with manager Brenden Rodgers looking to add the experienced winger to his ranks at Anfield.

Jesus Navas has longed been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester United rumoured to be interested in the Spaniard for the past few seasons.

Despite interest almost every summer for Jesus Navas, the winger has played for Sevilla all his career.

He also has 23 caps for Spain, helping his country win the 2010 World Cup and the Euro 2012.
