The Spain international Nolito says the only club who could tempt him to leave this summer would be Barcelona. With Pedro edging ever closer to a transfer to Manchester United, the 28-year-old former Benfica winger has been earmarked as a potential replacement at Camp Nou. And the Spain international admits a return to Barca, where he spent time mainly with the B-team set-up early in his career, is the only option if he were to leave Balaidos. "I go there or I stay at Celta, no matter what team comes in," he told a press conference. "I've had a lot of offers, financially to earn much more money, but I'm happy here, I feel like a player and I have the affection of the fans. "I repeat: I go to Barcelona or I stay at Celta." Nolito confirmed that reports of an agreement having already been reached with Barca are false - but he admits he would not turn down any forthcoming offer. "What is being said about a deal being agreed is a lie. I've had no offer from Barcelona," he said. "As I said at the time, Celta are in charge because there is an €18 million [release] clause. Yes, it's true that I've had offers from other teams but I took the decision to stay here. "You can't say no to Barcelona. They're one of the best teams in the world."
