When you pack your bags and embark upon a journey from Vigo to Manchester to play professional football, it's safe to presume that the weather may not be quite as good as it was back home.
Well it appears when Nolito made the €13.8m jump from Celta to Man City last year, his family weren't quite happy to say goodbye to the sun.
It's been a turbulent season for the Spaniard who only managed 36 minutes of football this side of Christmas and after his latest comments on life in Manchester, you can safely assume he is going to return to his homeland this summer.
Speaking on Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Nolito said his daughter "looks like she's been living in a cave" and that the only English he has really learnt in his time in England is ‘tomorrow’, ‘good morning’, ‘good afternoon’.
I don’t think City are counting on me too much, given how I’ve played since January.
Despite still being under contract the winger seems to be actively pushing for another club saying that he'll do "everything possible to make Spain’s World Cup squad.”
More telling than Nolito's comments about the Manchester weather is his admission that he has learned hardly any English. #MCFC

He was even spotted at an ice-cream parlour in Seville with the club's Sporting Director Oscar Arias, but said that it was just a chance encounter.
I was just casually shopping for clothes for my wife in Seville
I went to get a coffee and bumped into Sevilla’s director of football casually
Nolito's comments addressing the sighting in the city haven't quelled the rumours as his old coach at Celta Eduardo Berizzo will be taking the reigns at Seville.

The only start the winger has been given in 2017 was in an FA Cup tie against Huddersfield, not exactly the glamour fixture that Spanish coach Julen Lopetegui watches when considering players for national selection.
