RB Leipzig want to sign Angelino on a permanent deal. Man City loaned him out in January and he could make a permanent move away from the Etihad.

His future could depend on how the COVID-19 pandemic affects finances. The Bundesliga club hope to open negotiations with a view to getting him for around half the cost of the initial agreement (£25M).

Per Jonathan Smith of Goal, Leipzig want a lower fee if they are to take his contract on. This does not make a load of sense. From the report it seems they have liked his play and he has done well. Which is why its curious they want a lower fee despite the performance. It just does not add up.

City should be wise and stick to their valuation of £25M or just bring him back.

Thoughts on Angelino and the deal?
