Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo (28) will make a new nest at Bayern Munich (Germany). Although his performance has declined, the fundamental reason for his departure from Man City, who has been a key resource, is the ‘discord’ with manager Pep Guardiola (52, Spain), and locals are unanimous.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert in the European transfer market, said on the 31st (Korean time), “Bayern Munich and Man City have agreed on a lease contract for Cancelo this season.” “The full transfer option is 70 million euros (about 93.8 billion won). Not only Romano, but also locally, the news of Cancelo’s loan transfer to Munich is being conveyed one after another. 토토사이트
Cancelo, from the Portuguese national team, is a side defender who moved to Man City from Juventus in the 2019-2020 season. In his last season, he was strong enough to start 36 out of 38 matches in the English Premier League (EPL) alone. The reason why locals even express this transfer as ‘shock’ is because a player who was once a key player leaves the team during the season.
It is said that the discord with manager Guardiola was decisive in the background. As his performance declined, he naturally began to struggle in the main competition. Britain’s Daily Mail said, “Cancelu is said to have been furious after hearing the news that he had been excluded from the Arsenal match,” and “relationships with Guardiola have gradually deteriorated as he has expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of playing time in recent weeks.”
In particular, Cancelo succeeded in receiving a love call from Bayern Munich by promoting a direct rental transfer to leave Man City, and Man City also readily agreed to such a transfer of Cancelo. This is because the club did not want to accompany a player who had a discord with the manager and adversely affected the team. This is the background of the rare negotiations between big clubs, which were carried out swiftly at the end of the winter transfer market.
As the complete transfer option amounts to 70 million euros, it is unlikely that Munich will fully embrace Cancelo. However, as he left the team due to a disagreement with the manager during the season, Cancelo’s career in Man City is virtually at an end. The Sporting News said, “Cancelu’s Manchester City career, which contributed greatly to the recent Man City victory, also came to an abrupt end.”
