Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City left-back Angelino, who has spent the second half of the season on loan at RB Leipzig.

The Catalans have “expressed an interest” in the 23-year-old who is expected to cost around €30 million, according to multiple reports in the UK.

Angelino was part of the RB Leipzig side that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and has made 18 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga outfit.

The full-back’s loan deal included a purchase option which suggests City are willing to sell, according to the Guardian, and want to reinvest in a player who can provide more competition for Benjamin Mendy.

Angelino’s current deal with Manchester City runs until 2023, while RB Leipzig are also thought to be keen on landing him permanently.
