Pep power in full swing as City beat Spurs and Barca to sign Spain Euro 2016 star

Spanish journalist Manu Carreno has claimed that Manchester City have won the race to sign Celta Vigo winger Nolito.

Carreno dropped the transfer bomb during TV coverage of Spain’s 1-0 win over Czech Republic at Euro 2016 on Monday.

He revealed on Tele5 that City had beaten Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur to land the 29-year-old winger, who won on the pitch for 82 minutes as the defending champions edged out a plucky Czech side.

If this is true, the deal will make a big statement about the pulling power of Pep Guardiola, City’s new manager.

Nolito clearly stands a better chance of playing regularly for City than he would for Barca, but turning down the Catalan giants is still a big thing.

Watch our world, Man City are changing gears.
