Premier League giants City have signed Nolito from Spanish outfit Celta Vigo on a four-year contract, as announced on the club’s official website this morning.
Balague has suggested on Twitter that the Spain international forward could find it tough in the Premier League due to the physical nature of the English top flight.
We've only seen a bit of Nolito in Euros. He understands the system, knows when to go or pass, can score. Might find the physicality tough— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) July 1, 2016
Nolito scored 12 goals and created 60 chances in 29 La Liga appearances for Celta last season.
The Spain international attacker had a pass accuracy of 67% and a shot accuracy of 52%, and won 16 headers, 58 dribbles and 33 tackles.
During the 2014-15 campaign, Nolito scored 13 goals and created 95 chances in 36 league matches for Celta.
The 29-year-old scored one goal and created eight chances in four matches for Spain at the ongoing 2016 European Championship in France.
City, who will be managed by Pep Guardiola next season, will be aiming to win the Premier League title during the 2016-17 campaign.
