"Right now, I'm at Seville and like it very much," Negredo told reporters.
"If I stay that'll be fine but if I leave then it will be because it benefits both the club and myself.
"I'm happy on a personal level - but collectively we have not achieved the goals we wanted.
"Now perhaps I am at a decisive moment for my future."
As well as Negredo, City are also closing in on Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic after missing out on first-choice targets Isco to Real Madrid and Edinson Cavani, who is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain.
