Man City complete £24.5m signing of Negredo from Sevilla.

Alvaro Negredo will complete his £24.5m move to Manchester City on Wednesday afternoon, Sevilla club president Jose Maria Del Nido has said.

It looked as though the striker’s move to England was about to collapse earlier in the week as City had not reached Sevilla’s valuation, but the clubs have now come to an agreement. 

City will pay an initial £21.5m for the 27-year-old, who scored 31 times in 42 club appearances last season, but this could rise by £3m following add-ons.

On the move: Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo is set to join Manchester City

‘We are about to complete the sale of Negredo to Manchester City. If all goes well, he will say goodbye this afternoon at the Sanchez Pizjuan,’ Del Nido said.

‘City are signing a great player. It is the contract of his life.’

Negredo is the second player City have signed from Sevilla this summer following the £15m purchase of winger Jesus Navas.

Negredo will replace Juventus-bound Carlos Tevez in City’s strikeforce and could be soon joined by Stevan Jovetic, with negotiations over a £28m switch from Fiorentina ongoing.
