The Spanish full back has enjoyed a positive loan spell with the Bundesliga side this season

Angelino has impressed for Leipzig, helping them finish third in Germany’s top division and also qualify for the Champions League last eight.

Angelino initially joined City as a youngster in 2013 from Deportivo La Coruna’s setup but was sold to PSV in 2018 before making his Premier League debut.

City took advantage of a buy-back clause to re-sign Angelino for £5.3m last summer but he was in and out of Pep Guardiola’s side, making just 10 starts and 12 appearances in all, before being lent to Leipzig.

Having found regular football much easier to come by at Leipzig, Angelino is keen to remain with the Bundesliga outfit.

However, the club can’t meet his £25m fee so are looking to extend his loan spell at the club
