Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo has been linked with a move away from the Etihad as speculation intensifies over his future.
The 26-year-old Joao Cancelo has found himself on the bench in recent weeks and has not featured in the Premier League since mid-January. This has led to speculation that the right-back, who cost the club £ 27.5 million in 2019, could be on his way out of the club in the summer. According to reports, Europe’s top clubs have been alerted to the Portuguese’s availability and are monitoring the situation with a view to making a move.
Joao Cancelo’s lack of game time has been in part down to the form of teammate Kyle Walker, who has been in fine form this season. The Englishman has been an ever-present in Pep Guardiola’s side, making 25 appearances in all competitions and has played the full 90 minutes in the last 10 Premier League matches.
Joao Cancelo’s Career Holds What Now?
It is believed that the Portuguese international is keen to move in order to revive his career, as his lack of game time has also seen him slip down the pecking order for the Portuguese national team. Joao Cancelo made 37 appearances in all competitions last season, but this season has only managed 16, with the majority of those coming in cup competitions.
The former Juventus man is not the only player to have been linked with a move away from the club in recent weeks. Midfielder Fernandinho and striker Sergio Aguero are both out of contract in the summer, while defender Eric Garcia is set to join Barcelona at the end of the season.
It remains to be seen if Joao Cancelo will be the next to leave the club, but with his lack of game time, a move away appears increasingly likely. Stay updated with us about this transfer situation.
