Negredo Close To City Deal

Manchester City are on the verge of signing Spanish international striker Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla.

On Monday the Spanish club admitted that Negredo was a wanted man, but insisted that no suitors had made a sufficient bid yet.

But according to respected Spanish football correspondent Graham Hunter, a deal between City and Sevilla has been thrashed out.

“City should sign Negredo imminently for €25 million plus a further €3 million depending on performance/trophies/league position etc,” Hunter tweeted on Tuesday.

27-year-old Negredo has long been a favourite of new City boss Manuel Pellegrini, who tried to sign him for Malaga.

He scored 25 goals for Sevilla last season, and will be expected to adequately replace Carlos Tevez at the Etihad.

But Negredo may not represent the extent of City’s spending on their attack. After all, they are yet to replace Mario Balotelli, who left for AC Milan last season.

Mario Gomez’s arrival at Fiorentina has finally cleared the way for long-term Premier League target, Stevan Jovetic, to move to England.

Liverpool’s failure to sign Jovetic was one of the key factors that led to Rafa Benitez’s departure from Anfield, and Arsenal have flirted with Montenegrin too.

But reports suggest that City are in pole position to sign the highly rated 23-year-old, and could pay as much as €30 million to secure his classy services.
