The City forward believes that the Barcelona star may become bored in La Liga and engineer a switch to England before the end of his career.
"He could play well in any league in the world. Maybe in two or five years he will get bored with La Liga, want a change and come over here.
"The Premier League is the best place to be for the world's top stars. Having been here for a few months it is better than I thought it would be. Your expectations go up here."
Negredo signed for City from Sevilla in the summer.
