Manchester City and RB Leipzig are ‘well advanced’ in their negotiations over defender Angeliño but are yet to reach an accord over the Spaniard.

That’s according to RB Live, who say the two clubs are ‘still far from a final agreement’ over a permanent deal for the left-back.

Angeliño joined Leipzig on loan at the end of the January transfer in a surprising move given he had only returned to City last summer.

He had been a regular under Guardiola for much of the campaign but was quickly shipped out regardless.

He has impressed on loan with Julien Nagelsmann’s side, becoming a regular for them and putting in a series of impressive performances.

They have made it clear they would like to sign him permanently but decided against activating a clause in his loan deal to do so.

That was down to City’s asking price, and according to RB Live, the two clubs remain locked in negotiations over a deal.

The website makes no comment on what is holding up the deal but state they are ‘still far from a final agreement’ at this stage, despite negotiations being ‘well advanced’.

This is backed up by Kicker, although they claim that it is negotiations over a second loan that are advanced, not ones regarding a permanent deal.

Nonetheless, Leipzig are said to want to ‘retain the 23-year-old in the long term’ and are endeavouring to make that happen.

In the meantime, the two clubs have already agreed on a two-month extension to his current loan deal so he can help the Saxons finish up their Champions League campaign.
