RB Leipzig activate buy option in loan deal to sign Angelino for £16.3m; Spanish left back had been on loan at German club since January 2020; Angelino joined City in 2013 but made just 15 appearances for the first team
The 24-year-old left back had been on loan at the Red Bull Arena since January 2020, but has now signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Leipzig.
Angelino has often been used as a wing back by Julian Nagelsmann, with his new attacking freedom helping him to record eight goals and 11 assists this season.
Despite becoming one of the German league’s most productive full backs, Angelino failed to establish himself during two spells at City, making just 15 appearances in total.
He joined the club as a teenager from Deportivo La Coruna before embarking on loan spells at New York City, Girona, Real Mallorca and Dutch side NAC Breda.
Angelino then joined PSV on a permanent deal in 2018 but City used their buy-back option to re-sign him a year later.
However, he failed to convince Pep Guardiola and moved to Leipzig on loan after just six months back at the Etihad Stadium.
