Negredo Joins Man City

Barring a failed medical, Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo is set to join English Premier League giants Manchester City for a reported 23 million Euros.

The Sky Blues are close to finally sealing the signature of the much sought after Spanish striker.

The Spanish club are preparing for a ‘farewell’ press conference according to their official website.

“It's official: Alvaro Negredo is the new player of Manchester City, pending medical examinations, so Sevilla FC have organised a farewell ceremony at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for Wednesday evening,” said Sevilla’s official website.

"Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido will accompany the striker as he bids farewell."

Spain international Negredo, who scored 25 Primera Division goals last season, will link up with former teammate Jesus Navas, who moved to the Etihad Stadium from Andalucia earlier this summer in a £15m deal.

Del Nido said of the situation: “We are about to close on the sale of the player and, if everything goes normally and everything is signed, he will soon say goodbye to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

“Manchester City are buying a great player, the top-scoring Spaniard in La Liga. This is a big deal for Sevilla, the second most important in our history after we sold (now-Barcelona full-back) Daniel Alves, and the player will sign the contract of his life.

“Everyone should be happy; it is a great deal for all three parties.”
