Cape Town - Celta Vigo and Spain striker Nolito insists he is paying no attention to recent rumours suggesting that Manchester City are lining up a bid for his services.

The 29-year-old, who made two first-team appearances for Barcelona in the 2011/12 season before being sold to Benfica, is currently on international duty with Spain at Euro 2016 in France.

The striker has a release clause of €18m, and incoming Man City boss Pep Guardiola is said to be keen to activate it ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

When asked about the reported interest from the Citizens, he told reporters: "I just learned yesterday about my latest 'girlfriend,' but the truth is I am focused on the tournament, on the national team.

"I do not read the press much, although you hear about things. I am relaxed. I have a contract with Celta and must return there after the Euros."

Nolito made 29 appearances in the Primera Division last season, netting 12 goals and providing seven assists.
