Angeliño returns to RB Leipzig on loan from Man City with option to buy

RB Leipzig signed Manchester City full-back Angeliño on loan for another season Tuesday after he played with the Bundesliga outfit the second half of last season and helped its run until the Champions League semifinals.

The 23-year-old will spend the entire 2020-21 campaign on loan with Leipzig and will potentially stay on a permanent basis.

The season-long loan will include an appearance-based option to buy for an €18 million (£16m/$21m) fee through 2025, as said by Leipzig in a statement. you also can see a latest news about Messi returns to training with Barcelona for the first time at here!

Angeliño must then make 12 appearances playing for RB Leipzig to trigger the purchase obligation, and five of those 12 must come in the second half of the season.

After spending the first half of the season with Man City, Angeliño made 18 appearances on loan last season for RB Leipzig, with one goal scored and added five assists.

“I’m delighted to be staying in Leipzig and that we carry on our journey together,” Angelino told RB Leipzig’s official website.

“My first six months with RBL have been amazing; I got lots of game time straightaway and I really like the coach and the team’s approach.

“We also had really successful Bundesliga and Champions League campaigns. I’m very much looking forward to the future and lots more success.”

Angeliño initially joined Man City’s youth setup in 2013, and has also spent time on loan with New York City FC, Girona, Mallorca, NAC Breda and PSV.

“Angel hasn’t needed much time to settle in with us and he’s understood our brand of football from the start,” RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krosche added.

“He did really well in the Ruckrunde and also helped us achieve our goals in the Champions League. He’s made a great impact with us. That’s why we’re so pleased that he’ll be wearing an RB Leipzig shirt for at least another season.”

After finishing third in the Bundesliga table last term, RB Leipzig kick off their 2020-21 league campaign on September 20 when they host Mainz.
