Former Man City forward Nolito wants Celta Vigo return

Out-of-favour Sevilla forward Nolito wants to return to Celta Vigo this summer, according to a report in Marca.

The 32-year-old has one year left on his contract at the Andalusian club but is likely to request that he be allowed to leave for a minimal fee.

The forward featured in just 74 minutes of La Liga action last year and despite featuring 13 times in cup competitions, desperately wants more first-team football.

Nolito played for Celta across three seasons between 2013 and 2016, netting 39 league goals in that timeframe and earning an €18m move to Manchester City.

However, he netted just six times in an ill-fated spell in England and lasted just one full season before returning to La Liga with Sevilla the following year in a €9m move.

Having began his professional career with Barcelona - for whom he made two substitute La Liga appearances in 2010/11 - Nolito had spells with Benfica and Granada before a move to Galicia.

Celta are hopeful of adding to their strikeforce this summer with the expected departure of Maxi Gomez.
