After returning to Manchester City from PSV Eindhoven, Angeliño has been restricted to only three starts in all competitions this season.
PSV replaced the left-back by signing Toni Lato (on loan from Valencia) and Olivier Boscagli, but neither of them have convinced so far which is why Mark van Bommel had to field midfielder Michal Sadílek on the left side of defence.
Sadílek’s mistakes have cost the Dutch club this season and De Telegraaf claims PSV are hoping to bring Angeliño back to the club. Those at PSV can ‘blindly assume’ a return of the City defender can boost their back four.
PSV believe signing him on a loan deal remains a ‘more logical option’ than a permanent transfer.
It’s claimed that PSV will face competition from Ajax for the Spaniard and a move to the Johan Cruijff ArenA would be a better option, both financially and sporting wise for the player.
Angeliño will play in European competition (either Europa League or Champions League knockout stages) if he joins Ajax, but that won’t be the case if he moves to PSV in January.
Ajax are considering making an offer for the City player as they view him as a long-term successor for Nicolás Tagliafico. Their idea is to sell the Argentine for €40m next summer and invest half of the money in signing Angeliño.
‘Much will depend on Angeliño himself’ for any potential transfer, claims the Dutch newspaper.
It’s still not clear whether or not City are willing to cooperate for Angeliño’s transfer (even a loan deal) in January.
If the Etihad club decide to retain their player until the end of the season, then PSV will have to find another solution to fix the left-back problem.
