Nolito plays down Arsenal and Barcelona talk


The winger insists he is happy with his football

Celta Vigo star Nolito has insisted that he will not be leaving the La Liga side, despite the club admitting they are in a position to sell in the next transfer window.

The Spain international has scored six goals this season and has helped Celta climb to second position in the La Liga table, level on points with Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Arsenal have been linked with the 29-year old, but it looks as if Barca are the favourites to sign Nolito in the January transfer window.

Conveniently, the Catalonian giants have their transfer embargo lifted in January and Celta have admitted they are in a position to sell and make profit.

‘We have to be prudent’

When speaking to Mundo Deportivo, Celta Vigo Vice-President Susana Monje said: “We can sign and shall make an effort to do so, but we have to be prudent. The club has made profits, it is solid and that means we can cover the players’ salaries.”

She also added: “FC Barcelona is financially in very good health. This is the best moment ever in the history of the club. There is still potential to generate even more income but things are on the right track. We shall continue to reduce the debt and capitalise the club.”

On other hand, Nolito is adamant he will not be leaving Galicia, even though Barca boss Luis Enrique sees him as a potential replacement for Pedro; who left for Chelsea in the summer.

“God will decide my future, I’m not leaving in January. I’m happy in Vigo,” he told Radio Marca.
