Alvaro Negredo wants to stay at Manchester City

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from the Etihad this summer saying ‘I don’t want to leave.‘

The Spanish player, 28, was rumoured to be a transfer target for Atletico Madrid, after a poor end to the season fighting for his place with Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, but he has finally broke his silence over the transfer saga.

New La Liga champions, Atletico, who have lost two of their best strikers this summer, in Diego Costa and David Villa, took an interest in bringing Negredo back to Spain as a replacement for the two Spanish stars.

But the Man City and Spain man is reluctant to leave as he has enjoyed his time at the club, winning trophies and playing well.

He is quoted by the MEN as saying: “I don’t want to leave City. I’m very happy and very settled here.

“I had a difficult end to the season and that’s why there has been a lot of talking, but I’ve been very happy here from the first day I arrived.”

After joining the current Premier League champions last summer ‘the Beast’ netted nine Premier League goals in 32 games and showed that he is, at times, a world-class finisher.

Negredo was set to be one of the players involved in a huge player cull by Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, with others such as Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell also heading for the exit door.

These possible departing stars could make way for new players such as Everton’s Ross Barkley and Porto’s Eliaquim Mangala, as the Manchester club has to make sure they meet Uefa Financial Fair Play rules. They were hit with a £50 million fine as their colossal spending over the past few seasons was in excess of £1 billion.
