RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has some bad news for Barcelona amid rumors the Catalans are interested in signing left-back Angelino.

Barca have reportedly “expressed an interest” in the 23-year-old who spent the second half of the season on loan with the Bundesligan side.

Nagelsmann says his club are confident they will keep hold of Angelino and adds that the player wants to stay at the Red Bull Arena too.

“I am very confident that we can reach an agreement with Manchester City, now that both clubs are out of the Champions League and the focus is no longer on the tournament.

“Angel is a very interesting player for us and he wants to stay with us too.”

Barcelona are also being linked with moves for Jose Gaya and Nicolas Tagliafico currently, suggesting they are keen to make changes at left-back for next season.
