Nolito has finally grown tired of the indecision from long-term suitors Barcelona and has opted to join Manchester City, according to TV3, the primary TV channel of Catalan public broadcaster Televisió de Catalunya.
Nolito will sign a three-year deal with City plus the option of a fourth, and the Blues will trigger his release clause of around £13.8 million.
Sky Sports journalist Guillem Balagué has also reported tonight that City have made an offer to the 29-year-old, although his information doesn’t include Nolito’s decision.
