Joao Cancelo joins Bayern Munich on loan
Joao Cancelo has expressed his excitement to play for Bayern Munich after moving on loan from Manchester City on deadline day.
The Portugal full-back is set to join the German club for the rest of the season with an option to buy for £61.5 million in the summer.
He expressed his motivation to play alongside exceptional players for one of the best clubs in the world.
Cancelo had limited game time at Man City and was considered a disruptive influence in the dressing room.
Despite this, the club did not prevent him from pursuing the move to Bayern. The loan deal was confirmed by City with a statement.
Bayern is a potential opponent for Man City in the Champions League this season.
Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said Cancelo was a perfect fit for their system with his attacking style and dynamism.
Cancelo thanked Man City fans with a message on Instagram, saying “Once a Cityzen, always a Cityzen.”
