Nolito discusses potential Man City move

Celta Vigo striker Nolito is flattered by interest from both Barcelona and Manchester City.

Nolito is part of the Spain squad which takes on Italy later on Monday, but has been linked with a move away from Vigo.

Having scored 12 times in La Liga last season, the expectation is that Barcelona will make Nolito their fourth striker for next season. However, interest from Pep Guardiola has muddied the water somewhat.

The reason for serious interest from elite clubs is Nolito’s release clause of just £13.8m. Does that make his signing a no-brainer?

“I’m proud that two great coaches like [Barcelona boss] Luis Enrique and [Manchester City manager Pep] Guardiola are interested,” he told La Vanguardia.

“I’m lucky that they have me in mind; it gives you a boost. But I’m focusing on the Euros and nothing else. I haven’t spoken to either of them.”

“I’m enjoying it like a kid would and I’m not thinking about whether Barca will sign a forward. If Barcelona sign a striker then no problem. I congratulate them.”
