Sevilla have confirmed that they have agreed to sell their striker Alvaro Negredo.
Negredo have been linked with a move to the Premier League for a long time and it seems a though a move is complete.
A reported fee of £20 million is what Man City have paid in order to bring the prolific goalscorer to the Etihad.
“Pellegrini called me, we shared opinions and he convinced me about everything,” explained Negredo. “He told me what they could offer me there. It’s a challenge for me and in this life you can’t stand still. Now I start another journey and I’m very excited.
“I’ve spoken with Jesus this morning and I am happy to be with him for another year. He’s such an important player and a great guy. It’s a pleasure to play with him.” Negredo have said.
The 27-year-old scored 26 goals last season which made him the top scoring Spaniard in La Liga.
Manchester City are yet to announce the signing.
