Manchester City's star signings Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas don't need to speak in order to understand one another on the pitch - they just look at each other.

The Spain internationals, who both arrived from La Liga club Sevilla this summer, linked up to promising effect in City's 2-1 Audi Cup final defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night - and Negredo believes their partnership will lead to plenty of goals.

"We have had four years of working together," he told Manchester City's official website. "We can understand each other just by looking at each other and hopefully we can work together to score lots of goals."

The 27-year-old netted his first goal in City colours against the Bavarians, using his pace and strength to pull away from Javi Martinez before cooly finishing into the bottom corner past Manuel Neuer.

"Hopefully it will be the first of many in a City shirt," Negredo, who joined City for around £20m, added.

Navas also impressed in the match, showcasing the blistering pace and technical ability which led to City paying £17m for his services last month.
