Pep wins the race for Nolito
Manchester City have won the race for one of the stars of Euro 2016 – Spain forward Nolito.
The Celta Vigo attacker has emerged as a key player for Spain and has been heavily linked with Barcelona for at least the past two transfer windows.
On Tuesday, reports emerged from Spanish TV station TV3 (via Marca) that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have won the race to sign Nolito.
Manchester City have secured the signing of Nolito and the Spanish attacker will sign a three-year contract at the Premier League side, with an option for one more season.
Fans of Manchester City can now expect to welcome Nolito to the Etihad once Euro 2016 is over for the Spain squad.
Nolito follows Gundogan to City
Pep Guardiola has already started to restructure the Manchester City squad by bringing in German playmaker Ilkay Gundogan from Borussia Dortmund.
Nolito will likely supplement Sergio Aguero in the Manchester City attack. Earlier this summer, Manchester City were also linked with Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Celta Vigo striker has started all three of Spain’s games at Euro 2016. In the second match against Turkey, Nolito bagged a goal and an assist.
