Negredo has made just three appearances off the bench since returning from a foot injury, taking just one shot in 38 total minutes.

Negredo continues to work his way back to full fitness, though it's still unclear whether he'll get a legitimate shot to compete for the starting striker position with Paco Alcacer, who has four goals and four assists in 11 La Liga matches this season.

Negredo (foot) returned to training Friday but suffered a setback in his recovery Monday and he will have additional scans to determine the extent of the issue, Marca reports.

Negredo suffered a fractured metatarsal back in July while with Manchester City, and he has been unable to play since then. He was sent to Valencia on loan for the season but it's now unclear when he will make his debut.

Negredo (foot) has been sent to Valencia on loan for the season, with an obligation to buy at the end of the term.

Negredo was a big hit for Manchester City last season, but fell out of favor later in the campaign. He suffered a broken foot earlier this summer and was already behind Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic on the depth chart, so he moves back to Spain to get more first-team football.

Negredo is expected to be sidelined for up to three months after suffering a fractured metatarsal in Manchester City's friendly against Hearts on Friday, The Guardian reports.

Negredo had an excellent first half of last season before absolutely losing his form, and his starting spot to Edin Dzeko. The new injury greatly reduces his fantasy value, and he'll have to come back much stronger to warrant playing time over Dzeko and Sergio Aguero when he returns.

Manchester City does not intend to sell Negredo this summer despite rumors linking him with Atletico Madrid, reports the Daily Mail.

Transfer rumors grew earlier this week, but no official bid has been received for the player. The speculation included a 20 million price tag for the potential move to Spain.

Negredo was left off the Spain 23-man squad for the World Cup, the Daily Mail reports.

Negredo being left off would have been unthinkable in January, but his form fell considerably throughout the spring, which eventually led to coach Vicente Del Bosque choosing Chelsea striker Fernando Torres and Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa over Negredo.

Negredo came on for Edin Dzeko in the 86th minute of Manchester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Negredo has started only two of Manchester City's last 10 matches, as he's been thoroughly replaced by Edin Dzeko, who has scored five goals in his last three games. Stevan Jovetic seems to have passed Negredo on the depth chart, leaving him with little fantasy upside in the season finale Sunday against West Ham.

Negredo is in the starting XI for Wednesday's match against Sunderland.

Negredo has started only one Premier League match since March 1, but gets back in the XI with Sergio Aguero, who is making his first start since the end of January. Edin Dzeko had been in that role alone for the last month, but the Aguero/Negredo partnership that was so effective earlier this season will be back at it Wednesday against a weak Sunderland defensive unit.
