The Citzens took advantage of a buy-back clause to re-sign Angelino, just a year after the Spaniard departed the club for PSV Eindhoven. The City left-back however, left England for Leipzig in search of regular game time.
The full-back spent the last seven months on loan at RB Leipzig and helped the German club to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
After an impressive spell at Bundesliga, his stock have risen substantially, with the Bundesliga club keen to sign the Spaniard on a permanent deal.
According to Kicker as translated by Transfermarkt, the 23-year-old Spaniard’s return to RB Leipzig is ‘all but done’.
The report adds the Bundesliga side have agreed terms with the Angelino, while negotiations with Manchester City could be completed in the course of the week.

it is reported that Angeliño could cost the Red Bulls around €20 million – €10 million below the valuation claimed to have been quoted to Barcelona last month.
Pep Guardiola Selling Angelino and City not strengthening the left-side of the back four Could back fire as Zinchenko struggled with injuries himself and wasn’t able to recapture his form of last season while Mendy has been unable to find the spark he had upon arriving in England.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Chief and Man City Xtra, Manchester City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
No more loans just sell him if Pep Guardiola doesn’t want to use him.

At least swap with Upamecano if the deal with Koulibaly is that hard.

If Laporte was fit Angelino could have performed better. The problem is we have far too many LBs now- Mendy, Cancelo, Zinch and even Ake. So we won’t miss him.Pep wants Koulibaly, but if its not happening then angelino+ 30mil for upamecano is good business Txiki 🙏

Sad to see him leave, such an outstanding talent. Hopefully he can come back in the future.
