Joao Cancelo reveals something unexpected about Man City’s future

About Football Express UK

After publicly stating his intention to go, Joao Cancelo unexpectedly left the Etihad Stadium at the tail end of the January transfer window and quickly joined German champions Bayern on loan with a purchase option.

The Bavarians are still keen in signing him permanently but have already admitted that they are unlikely to be able to pay the €70 million buy price in the contract.

As far as 90min is aware, Cancelo would also draw interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea in a summer transfer. Cancelo revealed his close relationship with Man City in an interview with O Jogo, and he also said he would rejoin the team in the future.

Joao Cancelo on Man City players

“Will I still celebrate an English title with City? I hope so. I created a second family there,” Cancelo said.

“Bernardo [Silva] has become one of my best friends, he is the person I miss the most there. He was my psychologist. When something didn’t go so well, he was the one to talk to.”

“Ruben [Dias] too, but my relationship with Bernardo is actually very good, even on the field, we had a great connection when we played on the same side.”

“He is a person that I will take with me for the rest of my life. Of course, in England I’m rooting for them and I hope they win so that at the end of the season I can be celebrating a title in England and another in Germany.”

“City’s group is spectacular, it’s the best I’ve ever worked in, both as a group and personally. I created great friendships.”

“[Riyad] Mahrez is a great friend of mine, not a day goes by that he doesn’t call me.”

“[Jack] Grealish is a spectacular person. Nathan [Ake] is one of the best people I’ve met in football.”

“A spectacular group, I would go to training with great enthusiasm. Everything in life has an end. But at the end of the season I might even return, you never know.”
