Manchester City have announced the signing of Nolito from Celta Vigo on a four-year deal.
Nolito started all four of Spain's matches at Euro 2016 and he his move to City had been expected after the Premier League club City triggered the £13.8million release clause in his contract.
The 29-year-old joins City after three years at Celta Vigo and becomes Pep Guardiola's third signing as City manager following Ilkay Gundogan's arrival from Borussia Dortmund and Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy.
"I’ll try to bring as much as I possibly can. I’ll do everything that the manager asks of me, try my absolute best and do everything I can to try to repeat the form I’ve shown throughout my career at various clubs," Nolito told the club's official website.
"It’s just about trying to play my normal game and let’s hope that I can help Manchester City to win games.
"I think that Pep Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world. He knows a lot about the game and he’s going to help me progress as a player and I’m sure he’ll get the best out of me."
