Manchester City has completed their second signing of the summer after Nolito agreed to join the club on a four-year deal.
The 29-year-old joins the Blues from Celta Vigo after spending three seasons, netting 39 goals in 103 appearances.
The Spain forward played under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona, though spent much of his time with the Catalans’ B side from 2008 to 2011, reports the Manchester City website.
The former Benfica forward insists that he will try to replicate and implement the form he has shown over the course of his career.
‘I’ll try to bring as much as I possibly can,’ Nolito said.
‘I’ll do everything that the manager asks of me, try my absolute best and do everything I can to try to repeat the form I’ve shown throughout my career at various clubs.
Nolito believes the new City manager will help him improve his performance and bring out the forwards true potential.
‘It’s just about trying to play my normal game and let’s hope that I can help Manchester City to win games,’ he added.
‘I think that Pep Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world. He knows a lot about the game and he’s going to help me progress as a player and I’m sure he’ll get the best out of me.’
Nolito made his first international debut at the age of 28-years-old, playing in Spain’s 1-0 defeat to Germany during their international friendly match.
After making the preliminary squad for Euro 2016, Nolito scored four goals in two games against for Spain and was named in their final 23-man squad as a result.
Nolito started all three of Spain’s Euro 2016 group matches, including their Round of 16 defeat against Italy.
The former Celta Vigo forward has also played for the likes of Spanish side’s Sanlugueno, Ecisa, Barcelona, Granada and Portuguese side Benfica.
