FC Barcelona have lost out on the signature of the former Sporting Gijon left-back Jose Angel, also known as ‘Cote’. AS Roma have secured the highly-rated defender to begin their new project under coach Luis Enrique.
The deal for Jose Angel was said to be close to completion with only a small amount of money separating the Barcelona and Sporting Gijon price for the player. However, AS Roma came in with a better offer and are said to have signed the player for a price of 4.5 Million euros.
The 21 year old defender now joins Luis Enrique, who also played for Sporting Gijon during his career for the 2011-12 season. Do you think this one shall remain ‘the one that got away’? Let us know in the comments.
