La Liga club Sevilla has signed Nolito from Manchester City and penned a three-year contract with Spanish forward. The fee is reported to be £7.9m.
Nolito failed to impress in Manchester City after joining the Club last summer from Celta Vigo. He made 30 appearances in his one season with City and scored six goals. Half of those goals came in his first three games. He did not start a league game – or score a goal – in 2017.
Nolito has 16 caps for Spain and has bagged 6 goals. The forward also claimed that his daughter’s face has changed colour because of the English weather, following which he wanted to leave Manchester City as soon as possible, even when he had another three seasons on his contract with EPL club.
“I hope I can leave, whether it’s on loan, a transfer or whatever. I have several teams I’d prefer to join,” Nolito said.
The arrival of Nolito adds to those of Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastien Corchia.
He underwent a medical with Sevilla on Sunday and is now expected to join up with the squad on their pre-season trip to Japan.
