Swansea City right back Angel Rangel said he would consider leaving Swansea City in the Summer if he had the chance of making his dream move to the Premiership.

The defender has been a massive hit in the Championship this season, proving to be one of the best and most consistent performers in the League.

Manchester City are apparently looking at signing him, and in response, the Spaniard told the News of the World he’d have to consider a dream move to a top flight club.

Rangel said:

‘There are rumours bug clubs are interested in me. Until they make an offer they are just that – rumours.

‘I have one year left on my contract and I’m enjoying my football and my life in Swansea.

‘But if a Premier League club came in for me – and that hasn’t happened – then you would have to think about it. You would have to consider it to see if it’s worth taking or not.

‘I think the Premier League is the best in the world and the most exciting. You would have to consider an offer from a club in that league.

‘A Premier League club coming in for you is the dream of every player in the world.


Having said that, Rangel also added that he owes everything to Swansea City for the boost he has experienced in his career, and also dreams of playing Premiership football for the Swans:

‘Swansea have been playing fantastic football this season.

We’re now a fashionable team so everyone is watching us.

I’m told Manchester City and Celtic are interested in me and it’s nice to hear things like that it shows I’m doing well.

‘I want to play in the Premier League and hopefully it will be with the Swans.

‘My dream is to get there with Swansea and we have a chance to do it this season through the play-offs.

Swansea has everything to be in the Premier League – the stadium, the team and the staff. If we don’t make it this season then we’ll fight again next season.

‘I would have a chance of playing for my country if I were in the Premier League.

‘To play for Spain you would have to be playing for a team in La Liga or the Premier League.

‘I owe everything to the Swans. Roberto brought me here and he’s helped a lot. He gave me the chance to play in British football.’


It seems Swansea City will have their cut out in the Summer to keep their star players, as Jason Scotland is also the subject of a potential Summer bid from Middlesborough. We’re also hoping to sort out and keep loanee Jordi Gomez in South Wales, but he’s been linked with moves to Celtic and Newcastle United.
