Official: Nolito joins Sevilla from Manchester City

La Liga side Sevilla have this evening announced that Nolito has officially joined the club from Manchester City.


Nolito arrived at the Etihad just last summer for £13.8 million following a stellar campaign in his home country with Celta Vigo.

The Citizens were said to have beaten off interest from the likes of La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid upon their signing of the technically-gifted wide-man, though his experience in England since has been far from ideal.

A decent start to his Premier League career under Pep Guardiola quickly came crashing down following a number of disappointing performances and some disciplinary issues, with the Spaniard having become a forgotten man by the season’s end.

La Liga return

It was widely expected that Nolito would return to Celta this summer, with an agreement having been reported between the sides last month.

However, the Spaniard’s former side have missed out on their one-time fan-favourite, with fellow Liga side Sevilla having made their move for Nolito official across the club’s social media channels this afternoon:

The 30-year-old has put pen to paper on a 3-year contract, in a deal thought to be worth a fee in the region of 8 million Euro.
