Nolito joins City exodus

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has sold Nolito to Sevilla after the striker endured one disappointing season with the Premier League club.

The 30-year-old has penned a three-year contract with Sevilla and moves for a transfer fee that is reportedly worth €9million.

"Everyone at City would like to wish Nolito well with his move," City said in a statement.

The Spain international moved to City from Celta Vigo last summer but only started nine Premier League matches for Guardiola's team in 2016/17.

Nolito had said recently that he had failed to adapt to life in England and had struggled with the language and weather.

He played for Celta between 2013 and 2016 before moving to City and had been linked with a return there before eventually opting to join Sevilla.

The La Liga side have also signed Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastien Corchia this summer, while Vitolo, Adil Rami and Vicente Iborra have left the club.

Meanwhile, Guardiola has added Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker to his squad since the end of last season while allowing Willy Caballero, Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta to leave.

City are 1/8 to win the Premier League title in 2017/18 and 9/2 to triumph in the Champions League.
