The two men are yet known at Barca between 2008 and 2011, Pep Guardiola had the same start and Nolito in the first team as he came from Barça B. But this season, Nolito has not been able to reach the bar 27 appearances with the Citizens. The attacking spaniard did so that very little enjoyed spending petition express coach to fifth choice in attack behind Agüero, Sterling, Sané and Gabriel Jesus. Last week, the attacker andalusian confessed that he and his family were struggling to adapt to life in Manchester : “I learned very little English, it is super hard. Just the basic : “tomorrow”, “good morning,” “good afternoon” and a few other words. I am not accustomed to the weather here, the face of my daughter has changed color, it looks like she has been living in a cave. Currently, I’m under contract, so it is up to the club to decide, but I want to go, “he said. Thus, the situation was finally clarified, and some clubs were quick to position themselves on the attacking Spanish which should be loaned by Manchester City.
The Celta Vigo and FC Seville are all interested
A few days ago the Spanish media were surprised Nolito in the streets of Seville, near the stadium Sanchez Pizjuan exactly. The player had then met with Oscar Arias, the sporting director of FC Sevilla, which had confirmed the rumor. But his former club, Celta Vigo, is also interested in the profile of the player who wore the jersey galician between 2013 and 2016.

I know that there is the Atlético, but it is my representative who manages it“, he launched. If in a first time Atlético Madrid seems to be a very good alternative for the player andalusian, the prohibition of recruitment of the club of madrid can be a problem. The player could not be registered on the squad of Atlético until the month of January and a few months of a world, in Russia, this would be a big risk for Nolito, which has still not been recalled by Julen Lopetegui.
