The Sevilla winger’s switch to City was officially announced on Monday, with a fee believed to be in the region of £23m, and the Spaniard admitted that the move had been discussed earlier this year.
“I took the decision to go to City four months ago. I still haven’t spoken to Manuel Pellegrini but he is a coach that I know,” said Navas.
“I’m so happy to be joining Manchester City. It’s a good opportunity and I think both sides are happy.
“I’m leaving Sevilla, which is a beautiful place and I’m going to a big club in England. I’m still not comfortable speaking English though. I’ll have to study now.
“The most important thing with the deal is that everyone wins. I leave Sevilla very grateful for everything and hope to achieve big things at City.”
The 27-year-old also admitted that he knew little about the speculation linking Málaga’s Isco with a switch to the blue half of Manchester.
Isco is reportedly a target for the club with Málaga coach Manuel Pellegrini still the favourite to take over the reins at The Etihad.
Navas said: “I don’t know if Isco will come too. We’ll have to see. The Premier League is very fast and I’m very excited because Manchester City are putting a very good team together.”
Navas will be part of the Spain squad that will play in the Confederations Cup in Brazil later this month.
