Memorable moments that happened on this day in City’s history...

Thursday 28 June 2012

ESPN Sports report that Joan Angel Roman has signed for Barcelona on a three-year deal. The 19-year-old joined City from Espanyol in 2009 but first team opportunities had been limited and he took the opportunity to return to his native Catalonia.

Roman claims his time at City has not been wasted saying: "Being in England for three years has helped me to mature a lot and to become physically stronger. When I heard Barca were interested in me, I decided that was the move I wanted to make."
