Angeliño’s performances in the second half of the 2019/20 season for RB Leipzig convinced them to sign the Manchester City player again on loan last summer.
The Bundesliga side have a ‘purchase option’ included as part of the agreement with the Citizens.
Sky Deutschland transfer expert Max Bielefeld explains the Spaniard will ‘almost certainly stay’ with Julian Nagelsmann’s side because of ‘very interesting’ conditions mentioned in the contract.
According to Bielefeld, Leipzig have an obligation to make the 24-year-old’s loan deal into a permanent transfer if he plays 12 matches, out of which five should come from the second half of the season.
Operating as a left wing-back, the City man has been in fine form for Leipzig, scoring eight goals and managing five assists in 21 appearances in all competitions.
Sky also interviewed Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche, and he refused to either confirm or deny claims made by Bielefeld. However, he did express desire to retain Angeliño.
“My gut feeling tells me that there is a high probability that he will stay with us. He has been extremely important to us since he came to us last winter,” Krösche said.
“He made the breakthrough immediately and was able to very quickly implement the things that Julian Nagelsmann demanded. We are very happy that he is with us. We can assume that he will stay with us longer.”
