Breaking: Man City full-back to join Bundesliga club on four-year deal in the summer

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.
