Barcelona are rumoured to be interested in the defender, as a potential replacement for Eric Abidal, but Angel’s agent, Alfredo Martinez has adamantly denied these reports.
“Absolutely not, I know nothing of Barca’s interest,” Martinez told Laroma24.it.
“He wants to stay in the Italian capital, without doubt.”
“He’s happy in this team, this city and with his contract; we know that Roma will change their coach, but that changes nothing for us.”
Angel has made 27 appearances for the club, since moving from recently relegated Sporting Gijon last summer.
