Alvaro Negredo needed just 11 minutes to score his first goal for Middlesbrough, but it was not enough to claim all three points from Stoke City as the Smoggies drew 1-1.
The 30-year-old would have claimed all the headlines if not for a curling second half free-kick by Xherdan Shaqiri, which leveled the match at its final score in the 67th minute. Negredo was not the only Tessider who impressed, Gsaton Ramirez provided the assist on the debutant's goal while also hitting the post with a blistering effort in the second half. Aug 13 - 12:56 PM

Middlesbrough have finalized their loan move for Valencia forward Alvaro Negredo.

Boro have historically struggled to recruit top tier forwards. In Negredo they have a player who has succeeded at least sporadically and offers hope as they rise back into to the Premier League. The 30-year-old former Manchester City man wasn't terrible at the Etihad (9G, 3A in 21 starts and 11 sub appearances) but neither did he light the world on fire. His 2015-16 season at Valencia was underwhelming with 5 goals and 2 assists in 12 starts and 13 sub appearances. This looks like the case of a big name who is unlikely to live up to it. At least this is only a loan for Boro and they aren't paying a big transfer fee for Negredo.

Middlesbrough is expected to announced a season-long loan move for Valencia striker Alvaro Negredo in the coming week.

The loan deal reportedly includes paying the full cost of Negredo's wages, which are close to £100,000-a-week, in addition to a small loan fee while his contract also includes a chance for Middlesbrough to make the move permanent. The former Manchester City forward has spent the last two seasons at the La Liga side, where he has scored only 10 goals since leaving the Etihad. Meanwhile, Negredo is expected to join former Valencia teammate in defender Antonio Barragan, who joined the Teessiders in a £2 million move last week.

Manchester City have agreed to a season long loan of Alvaro Negredo to Valencia with a commitment by the Spanish club to agreee to an eventual permanent move for a transfer fee believed to be in the neighborhood of £30million.

With the emergence of Stevan Jovetic this season, Negredo found himself fourth in the pecking order at the striker position and this move should give him more playing time. Valencia will have to wait a bit for his services as he currently recovering from a foot injury. Obviously, there must be mitigating circumstances around this deal but if all goes according to plan, Negredo will be officially out of the Premier League to begin next season.

Alvaro Negredo is 'happy' and 'settled' at Manchester City and has no intention of leaving the Premier League club.

Reports over the past few months had suggested Negredo could return to Spain this summer after just one season at Manchester City. The striker had an electric start to his Etihad career, scoring 23 goals in all competitions, but a shoulder injury in January meant time on the sidelines and he never reached the same level on his return, losing his place to Edin Dzeko. This led to Negredo missing out on Spain's World Cup squad and there had been rumours of homesickness, but the 28-year-old insists he wants to stay in England and remains fully committed to the Premier League champions.

Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo is optimistic his recent lack of goals will not see him miss out on a place in Spain's World Cup squad.

Negredo made a blistering start to his Manchester City career but "The Beast" has started only one Premier League game in the past month, losing his spot to Edin Dzeko since injury. Team news suggests Dzeko will continue to partner Sergio Aguero for the title run-in, so Negredo will be hoping his impressive haul of 23 goals in his début season in England will be enough to convince Vicente del Bosque's that he deserves his place on the plane Brazil.

Manuel Pellegrini has revealed Alvaro Negredo will miss the FA Cup tie with Watford after suffering a shoulder injury.

Pellegrini said "Alvaro is not ready for Saturday. We will see in the next days how his shoulder reacts from the work he is doing. Maybe in a week he will be okay.". This suggests Negredo won't be ready to face Tottenham in midweek either, meaning Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko should start the Week 23 match-up.

Alvaro Negredo scored twice as Manchester City beat West Ham 3-0 (9-0 aggregate) to advance to the Carling Cup final. However, the Beast injured his shoulder and the club will learn if the injury is serious tomorrow.

Manchester City do have Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic coming back to fitness (Aguero scored again today) but Negredo has been the perfect foil for the Argentine star and he'll be missed if he is indeed injured.

Alvaro Negredo was an impact substitute today for Manchester City as he scored from a header to put the Blues ahead 1-0 over Hull City Tigers in the 65th minute.

Negredo replaced Edin Dzeko to begin the 2nd half after City were blanked in the 1st. Fed by a cross from Pablo Zabaleta, he delivered a powerful downward header past Tiger's keeper Allan McGregor. While Dzeko had a fine preseason and did not disappoint with goals in the first two regular season games, it appears Negredo is poised to unseat the Bosnian and earn a spot alongside Sergio Aguero in the regular XI.
