Man City have resigned a familiar face. Although a different piece of City transfer gossip is taking the spotlight here at the Football Manc Cave.
The news broke this morning that Angelino has become Pep Guardiola’s first addition to his side. The Spanish 22-year-old has spent a year at PSV Eindhoven where he played in every game for the side. His form attracted clubs like Arsenal. However, Man City beat them to it and have signed him on a four-year deal.
Angelino has reportedly been keeping up to date with Man City while playing in Holland. He spoke about, how it’s been a ‘pleasure’ to watch the football coming out of Guardiola’s team. The left-back will be able to contribute to the blue’s defensive line next season. With Kompany departing over the summer. The Manchester side needs to make sure their options for their back four is strong.
Personally, I’m happy that Man City has signed a player back to them that spent years in their youth teams. It’s always good to see a club develop a player, send them out to gain experience and then end up wanting them back as a result of their hard work. Now that he has grown as a player, he will surely gain interest from his international side too. Angelino has already played at youth levels for Spain. So now he may gain his senior level call up as a result of being back at the Premier League side.
A hot topic for Man City fans
As part of the deal in seeing the Spanish defender come back to the Etihad. Man City has had to activate a £5.3 million buy-back clause. However, this signing is not the hot topic for fans of the Manchester club.
This comes after the news of Man City paying Atletico Madrid the £63 million release clause for Rodri. The signing will be a club record signing. Confirmation of Rodri becoming a blue had been revealed this morning and many comments stating, that while they welcomed the Spanish defender. They were really just hanging on for the Spanish midfielder.
