Nolito set to snub Chelsea move

Nolito set to snub Chelsea move

by -

Celta Vigo winger Nolito is set to snub a move to Chelsea as interest from a host of teams intensifies. 

The Blues are reportedly keen on the 29-year old, as well as Premier League rivals Arsenal, Everton and Spanish champions Barcelona.

The Daily Star reports that the latter is the Spaniard’s most likely destination, despite a failed stint at the Nou Camp in 2011.

It is believed Nolito himself is also keen on a move to the Spanish giants, with Luis Enrique reportedly keen on replacing Pedro, who himself moved to Chelsea last summer. The winger has netted seven goals in 11 appearances and is a regular member of Vicente del Bosque’s senior Spanish squad.

“Luis Enrique’s one of my sporting parents. At Barca B, he made me realise that I could make a living in this business,” Nolito said to Sportium.

“What has to happen will happen. You can never say never, but at the moment I’m delighted with how things are going in Vigo and Celta must be respected.”
