Report: Manchester City will re-sign Angelino for £10.5m amid Arsenal interest

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola sits in the dugout ahead of the Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester City at American Express Community Stadium on May...

Arsenal, Barcelona, PSG, Ajax and Dortmund reportedly want PSV flyer Angelino - but he's heading back to the Premier League with Manchester City.

Manchester City are plotting a shock move to bring former youth team player Angelino back to the Etihad Stadium after a fantastic spell in Holland, according to La Voz de Galicia.

The Spain U21 international moved to England’s North West in 2012 after making his name in the youth system at Deportivo La Coruna.

And while Angelino made his debut for City in a Champions League qualifier against Steaua Bucharest three years ago, only two more appearances followed under Pep Guardiola before he headed to the Eredivisie.

 

The 22-year-old impressed on loan at NAC Breda in 2017/18 however, with his swashbuckling displays from left-back convincing PSV Eindhoven to sign him on a permanent basis.

And Angelino quickly emerged as a key player under the stewardship of Mark Van Bommel, ending the season with 12 assists in 43 games for the Eredivisie runners-up.

But few expected that Angelino would be on his way back to Manchester City, just 12 months after he left.

Though with clubs like Napoli, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona and City’s Premier League rivals Arsenal interested, Manchester City will apparently take up their option to re-sign Angelino for a bargain £10.5 million.

Paris Saint-Germain also offered around £22 million, the report adds, but a clause in his contract means City can snap him up for a much smaller fee.
