Manchester City winger and Spain international Nolito is desperate to leave the Etihad this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Nolito, who joined Manchester City last summer from La Liga side Celta Vigo for a fee to be believed around £13 million, has struggled for first-team opportunities under Pep Guardiola.

The Spaniard is eyeing a return to his homeland of Spain, with Atletico Madrid and former club Celta Vigo both interested in signing the 30-year-old.

Since joining the Citizens last summer, the Spanish international has made 30 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals.

The winger started really well under Pep Guardiola in the first-half of the season, with the 30-year-old making 19 Premier League appearances, scoring four goals.

However, since December, the Spaniard has fallen down City’s pecking order, with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling proving to be better options for Guardiola.

Speaking to Spanish outlet Marca about his year in Manchester, the Spanish international said: “I’d like to leave Manchester City. on loan, a transfer, whichever way possible.

“Up until December I was playing and was happy, but after those four months, I’ve hardly played.

“It has been a year to forget, an experience that hasn’t turned out as I’d planned, but hopefully this summer we’ll find a solution.”
