Valencia are interested in signing highly-rated Manchester City full-back Pablo Maffeo, who is currently on loan at LaLiga rivals Girona FC.

Maffeo, 20, recently earned media attention for man-marking Lionel Messi and impressing during a clash against Barcelona.

The defender is enjoying a third loan spell at the Spanish minnows and with his long-term future at City in doubt, a permanent move away could be in the offing.

And Valencia are keen to pursue a potential deal for the youngster at the end of the season.

City may be open to a deal given that Maffeo is likely to be third-choice right-back at best, unless Pep Guardiola decides to use him elsewhere in his starting line-up.
