Sevilla and Man City strike terms for Nolito

Sevilla and Man City strike terms for Nolito

As per a growing number of reports in Spain this afternoon, Premier League giants Manchester City have agreed a fee with La Liga side Sevilla for the transfer of attacker Nolito.

Nolito had previously played under Guardiola at Barcelona and was his second signing as City boss, arriving at the Etihad shortly after German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

Nolito did grab five goals and three assists in his limited playing time, effectively proving his worth as a solid substitute.

Nolito will also be reunited with his former manager at Celta Vigo in Eduardo Berizzo, who succeeded Jorge Sampaoli earlier in the summer, and it was his form during the 2015/16 campaign which convinced City to sign him last summer.

"I'm insane to return to Spain, I'd like to leave Manchester City whether it's on loan or permanently, whichever way possible", he said.

First it was reported Manchester City would get around €10m, then it dropped to €9m, and now Estadio Deportivo report Sevilla are paying €8m.

The arrival of Nolito adds to those of Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastian Corchia, while Vitolo, Adil Rami and Vicente Iborra have been among the players to leave Sevilla in a busy transfer window.
