Julian Nagelsmann would like RB Leipzig to sign Jose Angel (Angelino) permanently from Man City. But he has a solid option to buy, which is €20 million.
Julian wants to sign full-back forever
Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann is impressed by how quickly Angeliño settled in RB Leipzig and wanted to sign a full-back forever from Manchester City. The 23-year-old defender joined the German side on loan from the Premier League giants in January and held four appearances in all competitions. On Tuesday, Angeliño impressed the Bundesliga in the first match of the Champions League against Tottenham Hotspur. As in the second half, they beat the team of Jose Mourinho with a score of 1-0 through Timo Werner’s penalty kick. It was planned that the Spaniard would return to England at the end of the season. But Julian is already convinced that he wants to keep him for a long-term deal, although he fears that RB Leipzig can’t afford it.
Angelino is an intuitive player
Julian told reporters: “Here he has to do a lot different than with Pep Guardiola. He adapts to things very quickly. He is the only newcomer who gets used to the way I think about football – it’s just a shame – so fast.”Angelino doesn’t too worried, but intuitively does a lot of the right thing. Jose plainly thinks a lot before the games and thinks about what he needs to do and how pleased the coach is.”He’s not so stable in the back four.” He added: “He has a juicy price tag. We must first see what is in the wallet and whether the player and the selling club will play. We will see in the future.”
Juicy price €20 million for Angelino
Julian’s team has an option to outright buy it for about € 20 million (£ 17 million / $ 22 million) for the season. In 2013, he moved to MLS outfit the New York City FC, Girona, Mallorca, NAC Breda, before signed a contract with PSV in 2018. He impressed in his 43 appearances with a Dutch outfit. Next year Man City repurchased it for only € 12 million (£ 10 million / $ 13 million). So he continued to play 12 matches for the Guardiola team this season before his January move. The Spanish player Under 21 international is signed to the defending English champions until 2023.
