OFFICIAL! Manchester City complete deal for Spanish star

As Spanish midfielder Rodri is set to complete a big-money move to Manchester City, the Premier League champions have on July 3 completed the signing of another Spanish player, José Ángel Esmorís Tasende, from Dutch Eredivisie giants, PSV Eindhoven.

Commonly known as Angelino, the Spanish left-back previously was at Manchester City between 2013 when he joined from Deportivo La Coruna and 2018 when he joined PSV at the end of his deal at the Etihad Stadium.

But he only featured three times for the Cityzens in his first spell at the club, spending much of that time out on loan at New York City FC, Girona, Real Mallorca and NAC Breda.

“Manchester City are delighted to announce the resigning of Angelino from PSV Eindhoven, who will join subject to international clearance,” wrote the club on its website.

The club’s statement added: “The 22-year-old defender has signed a four-year contract, which keeps him at the Club until the summer of 2023.”
