The Spaniard enjoyed a strong debut season with the Premier League champions, bagging himself 23 goals in the process.
However, despite his impressive return in front of goal City boss Manuel Pellegrini sought to ship him out on loan for the current campaign over the summer.
City have since splashed out £28m on Wilfried Bony, and it looks as though Negredo will be making a permanent exit at the end of the present campaign.
“I still follow Man City. I have many friends there and I am happy with what they are doing. I learned a lot and won some titles there so, of course, they are still in my heart,” he said of City.
“It was very difficult. I waited to the last hour before leaving but I was feeling a bit homesick. It was good for me to go back to Spain but it was very difficult to leave Manchester City as the fans have always been wonderful to me.
“Homesickness is not the whole reason. I needed more playing time to build up my performance levels after my shoulder injury. With my way of playing I did not feel I was getting the same opportunity so I left.”
