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.

Alvaro Negredo: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

Negredo (shoulder) is available off the bench for Wednesday's match against Tottenham.

Negredo suffered a shoulder injury last week, but it was not considered serious. With Edin Dzeko playing so well lately, City can afford to potentially sit Negredo to make sure he doesn't suffer any kind of setback.

Negredo (shoulder) is in the squad list for Wednesday's Premier League match against Tottenham.

Negredo suffered a shoulder injury in last Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against West Ham and was seen wearing a sling the next day. However, manager Manuel Pellegrini stated that it was merely precautionary. It's unclear if Negredo will start the match or if Edin Dzeko will play up front with Sergio Aguero at White Hart Lane.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Despite suffering a shoulder injury in Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against West Ham, Negredo is expected to play Tuesday against Tottenham, the Daily Mail reports.

Negredo was pictured wearing a sling for his right shoulder, but it sounds like it was purely for precautionary reasons and he'll be fit enough to play against Spurs. However, with a healthy Sergio Aguero and an in-form Edin Dzeko, it wouldn't be surprising if he either didn't start, or didn't go the full 90.
