Man City have so many attacking options you’d be forgiven for forgetting one or two of them still exist.

In an attempt to reduce his selection headache ever so slightly, Pep Guardiola has offloaded Nolito just a year after the Spain international arrived in Manchester.

Adios, amigo

The 30-year-old forward has signed a three-year deal with Sevilla for a transfer fee of £7.9million.

In an age when Kyle Walker is apparently worth £50million, you’d have to say the La Liga club have picked up a bargain.

Man City have allowed Nolito to leave for nearly £6million less than what they paid for him last summer.

The arrivals of Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus have added to an already impressive crop of attack-minded players that also includes the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and David Silva.

With limited spots in the starting line-up, Nolito has been allowed to leave in search of regular football.

Nolito was sparsely used in the second half of last season

The former Celta Vigo forward made a bright start to his Man City career with three goals coming in his first three games but he fell out of favour and did not score or even start a league game in 2017.

Nolito also suffered to adapt to the English way of life, claiming that the weather caused his “daughter’s face to change colour” last month.

Adios.
