The forward is reportedly heading to Manchester ahead of a move
Man City are close to completing a deal for Nolito.
According to reports, the forward could be a City player very soon, with some reports claiming a deal could even be done by the end of this week.
The Spaniard has been a target for Pep Guardiola over the past few weeks and a deal appears to be getting closer to completion with the 29-year old heading to Manchester in the coming days to help finalise a deal.
Guardiola and Nolito have a good relationship, with the manager giving the player his first start for Barcelona’s first team back when he was at the Nou Camp in 2010/11.
Spain out of the Euros
Since then, the forward has been to Portugal and then back to Spain with Granada on loan and now Celta Vigo.
Guardiola is now keen for a reunion with the 29-year old in England and is hopeful a deal can be agreed soon.
He has been helped with this because of the fact that Spain have now been knocked out of the Euros – it means Nolito – who featured quite heavily for his national side at the tournament – is now back home and able to travel to England to complete a deal.
