According to The Mirror, Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo wants to quit the Citizens in favour of a move back to Spain with Atletico Madrid his favoured destination.
Negredo and his family have failed to settle in the city despite scoring 23 goals in his first season in Manchester.
The homesickness combined with a shoulder injury saw him miss that final four months of the Premier League campaign and meant he missed out on Spain’s World Cup squad.
And apparently Negredo is hoping he can be the man to replace Chelsea-bound striker Diego Costa at Atletico Madrid.
Negredo was born and bred in the Madrid suburb of Vallecas and began his career with Atletico’s rivals Real Madrid.
Manchester City fans. Negredo gave his all for the club but it just didn’t work out for him. So who would you like to see come in and replace the Spaniard? Let us know your thoughts below.
