RB Leipzig coach Nagelsmann hopes Man City realistic about Angelino price

RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann hopes Manchester City are realistic over their asking price for Angelino.

The German outfit signed Angelino on loan for the rest of the season in January and Nagelsmann is already keen on making the deal permanent.

RB Leipzig reportedly have a £25million option to sign Angelino on a permanent basis but it seems Manchester City may have the right to increase their valuation of the left back.

Nagelsmann told Kicker: "Here he has to do a lot of things very differently than he did with Pep Guardiola. He adapts to things incredibly quickly.

"He is the only newcomer to get used to the way I think about football — just offensive — so quickly.

"He doesn't worry too much, but intuitively he does a lot of things right. He obviously thinks a lot before the games and thinks about what he needs to do and how the trainer is satisfied.

"He is not quite as stable in a back four.

"He has a juicy price tag. We first have to see what is in the wallet and whether the player and the selling club will play along. We will see in the future."
