Manchester City and RB Leipzig have discussed a new loan agreement for Angelino for next season.
Left-back Angelino joined Leipzig for the rest of this season in January, an agreement that also included an option for the Germans to buy the 23-year-old for £ 25 million.
The Bundesliga side can’t afford to activate that option, but still wants to keep the Spaniard. They hope to reach a new agreement with a new option or purchase obligation next summer.

The Spanish fullback has enjoyed a positive loan period with the Bundesliga this season
Angelino impressed Leipzig and helped them finish third in Germany’s top division and also qualify last for the Champions League.
Angelino initially joined City in 2013 as a youngster from Deportivo La Coruna, but was sold to PSV in 2018 before making his Premier League debut.
City took advantage of a buy-back clause last summer to re-contract Angelino for £ 5.3 million, but he was in and out of Pep Guardiola’s side, making only 10 starts and 12 appearances in total, before being loaned to Leipzig.
Angelino, who found football much easier in Leipzig, would like to stick with the Bundesliga outfit.
However, the club is unable to make its £ 25 million, so he is looking to extend his loan period with the club
