One way or another, it appears that Angeliño will be leaving Manchester City permanently come the end of the season.

Enjoying himself on loan at RB Leipzig during the second half of the last campaign, the Spaniard returned to Germany for a second spell, with the deal this time including a clause that would force the Bundesliga side to sign him for good after a number of appearances.

How many is needed isn’t said, but it’s not something the 23-year-old is really worrying about, saying as much to Kicker, relayed by Fussball Transfers.

He said: “I really don’t know for sure, but a few more games need to be played. If everything goes normally, it will happen. In any case, I hope that I’ll be on the pitch for RB Leipzig for a long time to come”.

That doesn’t sound like a player wanting to return to the Etihad after picking up some match experience abroad, so, barring a big injury that could keep him out of action for the rest of the season, it seems Angeliño will be transferring in the summer.

Following a good spell at PSV Eindhoven, Manchester City bought the 23-year-old back due to their need for a left-back.

However, a lack of appearances led to the player wanting first-team football elsewhere, which is when the Leipzig door opened.
