Sevilla announced the arrival of Jesus ‘Tecacito’ Corona on Friday. The 29-year-old Mexican with a striking name is leaving FC Porto, where he played the past 6.5 seasons. In Andalusia, he signed an agreement until June 2025.
The winger has made no fewer than 286 official games for Porto in recent seasons, in which he scored 31 times and provided 69 assists. Previously, Corona played for Monterrey in his own country and for FC Twente in the Netherlands. The 63-time Mexican international became champion twice with Porto.
Midfielder Ibrahim Amadou is now leaving Sevilla. The 28-year-old Frenchman moves to Ligue 1 club FC Metz. Sevilla has already rented out Amadou to Norwich City, Leganes and Angers in recent years. In the summer of 2018, Sevilla had paid around fifteen million euros for the midfielder at Lille. Breaking through in Andalusia, however, never succeeded.
Sevilla are in second place in La Liga, five points behind leaders Real Madrid with one game less played. The Southern Spanish team is also still active in the Europa League.
