WATCH: Sevilla “kidnap” Jesus Navas in one of the most outlandish player unveiling’s this summer

The former Man City winger has returned to his old stomping ground in bizarre fashion

The summer transfer window of 2017 will forever be remembered as the year player unveiling’s went from conservatively mundane to down-right bizarre. 

So far, we’ve had a superheroes themed mini-series from Southampton, slightly confusing in-jokes from Crystal Palace and this no-f**ks-given approach from Roma, courtesy of Aleksandar Kolarov.


It’s all rather fun.

And a bit ridiculous, really.

What is going on

What is going on

Of course, everyone’s getting in on the act.

Even Sevilla, who have decided to confirm the capture of new/old boy Jesus Navas with an actual kidnapping.

Sorry what?

Watch the video below to find out:

In case you didn’t realise, Navas has rejoined Sevilla on a free transfer, having been released by Manchester City at the end of last season.

The nippy winger joined City from the La Liga side back in 2013, and made 173 appearances for the Citizens, scoring eight goals.

The 31-year-old’s time in the Premier League was largely unremarkable, as he became largely known for struggling to cross the ball into the box.

Which makes us wonder why Sevilla felt the need to kidnap him?
