Manchester City attacker Nolito has claimed his “daughter’s face has changed colour” since he moved to England last year.
The Spain international moved to The Etihad from La Liga club Celta Vigo in the Summer of 2016 for a fee in the region of £14m.
He has struggled to make an impact during his first season in the Premier League and has now stated his desire to leave.
“I’ve learnt little English. It’s hard. Just ‘tomorrow’, ‘good morning’, ‘good afternoon’ and a little more.” he told radio station El Transistor.
“My daughter’s face has changed colour – it looks like she’s been living in a cave.”
“I am under the contract, so the club will decide, but I want to leave.” he finished.
The thirty-year old hasn’t scored a goal for City since Boxing Day and only notched six in thirty appearances in all competitions.
It looks like a transfer to a warmer country is in the pipeline for him.
