Joao Cancelo: Bayern Munich confirm loan signing of Portugal full-back from Manchester City with €70m buy option

German champions Bayern Munich have confirmed the arrival of Portuguese international full-back Joao Cancelo on loan from Manchester City until the end of the season.

Cancelo, 28, joined City in 2019 as part of a swap deal that saw Brazilian full-back Danilo go the other way. He became a regular for City and was a key cog in Pep Guardiola’s title-winning sides, drawing particular praise for the way he moved inside from full-back to operate as a hybrid midfielder during matches.

However, he reportedly fell out with Guardiola after a training ground incident and has been quickly moved on to Bayern for the rest of the season.

Various reports have suggested that there is a purchase option within the contract for the loan, with the fee reportedly standing at €70m.

Bayern have had issues at full-back this season, with first-choice options Noussair Mazraoui and Alphonso Davies both struggling with injuries during the campaign.

Benjamin Pavard has also had injuries and is reportedly of interest to Barcelona in the summer.

The defending Bundesliga champions are top of the table but are only one point ahead of Union Berlin and two ahead of RB Leipzig.
