RB Leipzig have triggered an obligation to buy clause implemented into the loan deal that took Angelino to the Bundesliga from Manchester City.
The Spanish full-back struggled to find game time at the Etihad Stadium, and left the club on a short-term loan in the Bundesliga towards the end of the last campaign in search of more minutes.
That loan deal was then extended by a full season, and since making the move to Germany, the 24-year-old has flourished under manager Julian Nagelsmann playing in more of a left-wing back and left-wing position for the Bundesliga side.
Following a 5th appearance in the second-half of the season on Friday evening, the clause to take Angelino to RB Leipzig on a permanent deal for a fee in the region of €18 million has now been activated.
It has now been confirmed that the Manchester City academy graduate will sign a four-year contract with RB Leipzig until 2025.
City retain the right to buy the player back for a fee of around £35 million, however they do not have any sell-on clause implemented into the deal, and so would not receive any finances should Leipzig sell the player in the future.
Angelino has made a total of 28 appearances so far this season, scoring eight goals and providing 11 assists – impressive numbers to say the least.
There remains an expectation that City will enter the market for a new left-back in the summer, as per reporting from Fabrizio Romano. Pep Guardiola has enjoyed some success with Joao Cancelo in the position, and recently Oleksandr Zinchenko, however a mainstay in the position has been hard to come by, despite the signing of Benjamin Mendy in 2017.
