Not convincing since his arrival on loan at Bayern Munich, Joao Cancelo could definitely leave Manchester City this summer.
Lent by Manchester City au Bayern Munich during the winter transfer window, João Cancelo will see its former partners lift the Premier League trophy from afar, officially won on Saturday following Arsenal’s defeat at Nottingham, and it could be the same for the Champions League… Guilty of an average start to the season, the he Portuguese international then fell victim to Pep Guardiola’s change of system, depriving himself of real full-backs in his starting lineup.
Bayern not convinced
At Bayern, things didn’t really work out. Since his arrival, the player who will soon celebrate his 29th birthday has certainly found playing time, but has not managed to find the level that had made him a key element of the Cityzens in the last two seasons. Not convinced by his performance, the German club would not wish to extend his loan or exercise the purchase option of around 60 million euros, as Ekrem Konur indicated on Sunday.
🚨Manchester City’s 28-year-old Portugal defender Joao Cancelo is being monitored by Arsenal and Barcelona, with Bayern Munich unlikely to extend his loan.

The Turkish journalist even claims that Arsenal and FC Barcelona, who do not have a professional right-back in their workforce, are interested in his situation.
