Stuttgart launching bid for Man City defender Pablo Maffeo

Stuttgart are launching a bid for Manchester City defender Pablo Maffeo.

Maffeo is currently on-loan at Girona.

The Mirror says Stuttgart are set to make an £8million offer for City's highly-rated Spanish defender Maffeo.

The 20-year-old has excelled during a loan spell at City's sister club Girona this season as the Catalan minnows have moved towards securing an excellent top-half finish in La Liga.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi was so impressed when he was marked by Maffeo last September that he took time at the end of the game to praise the right-back personally.
