Barcelona line up transfer for €30m-rated Manchester City full-back Angelino

Barcelona are interested in signing €30m-rated Angelino from Manchester City as part of Ronald Koeman’s rebuilding project.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of the season on loan at RB Leipzig, helping Julian Nagelsmann’s side to claim a third-place Bundesliga finish and progress to the Champions League semi-finals.

Angelino’s Leipzig loan deal included a €30m option to buy and City are willing to entertain offers around the same valuation from other clubs.
