Cancelo in search of a new home!

Cancelo in search of a new home!

Bayern do not plan to extend the six-month loan of wing defender Joao Cancelo, but the Portuguese is also not needed in Josep Guardiola's Manchester City! Barcelona, Real Madrid and Arsenal are considered the main contenders for his purchase.

Six months ago, Canselo played for Manchester City and was the main left back of the team. But in the last days of the transfer window, the Portuguese suddenly moved to Bayern on loan. As it turned out, Joao had a serious quarrel with the head coach of the Cityzens, Josep Guardiola, and was forced to temporarily leave the club, which in a few weeks has every chance of collecting a treble.

In four months at Bayern, the 28-year-old defender performed very well, scoring one goal and providing six assists in 20 games. However, the Bayern management itself crossed out a quite successful emerging season, sensationally dismissing head coach Julian Nagelsmann. As a result, Die Roten may not become German champions for the first time in 11 years, and next summer they will face a serious cleaning of the squad.

Cancelo will also fall under it, since the club does not intend to pay 70 million euros for him, which are required by Manchester City. However, returning to the Etihad is not the best idea for the Portuguese, where he risks not reconciling with Guardiola and sitting securely on the bench. Given João's solid football skills, he is a coveted item on the transfer market, so the Cityzens are sure to put him to another club.

It is unlikely that it will be Arsenal, as City have already reinforced the Gunners with Jesus and Zinchenko, which put their own championship in jeopardy. So there will be no more transfer ties with a direct competitor. El Classico rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona remain. As for meus Los Blancos have much more serious problems with wing defenders and, moreover, a significantly higher transfer budget. Therefore, in the case of a worthy offer, Manchester City are unlikely to object to Cancelo's transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.

At the peak of his career, João Cancelo became a hostage to a bad temper and questioned his future in football. The Portuguese can only hope that some rich club will buy out his contract, otherwise it will not be easy for the wing defender to return to his previous level.
