Official: Manchester City sell Rubén Sobrino to Deportivo Alavés for £1.75m

Manchester City have announced the sale of 25-year-old Spanish striker Rubén Sobrino to Deportivo Alavés after a successful loan spell at the newly-promoted La Liga club last season.

Alavés have used their option to buy the former Real Madrid academy talent for €2million (£1.75million), meaning City have made a profit to the tune of around £1.5million on a player signed in 2015 for just £200,000.

Sobrino was initially loaned to partner club Girona to help their push for promotion to La Liga in 2015-16, but after that failed he moved up a league by joining Alavés. During his season at the Estadio Mendizorrotza, Rubén scored 3 goals in 16 appearances.
