Sevilla announce Negredo departure

By Football News



Sevilla have confirmed the sale of striker Alvaro Negredo to Manchester City.

The La Liga club announced the deal on their official website with the player set to undergo a medical at the Etihad Stadium in the coming days, although the finer details of the move have yet to be released.

A move to City for the Spain international had long been mooted, with new manager Manuel Pellegrini keen to add to his forward line following the sale of Carlos Tevez  to Juventus. 

He joins Jesus Navas in making the switch from Sevilla to the Etihad Stadium, and will compete with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko for a place in City's starting line-up.
