Bayern Munich: a problem for a winter recruit?


While Portugal’s João Cancelo has been loaned to Bayern Munich until the end of the current season, Manchester City may find it difficult to sell the full-back.

Disappointed with his playing time since the end of the World Cup in Qatar, in the words of Pep Guardiola, Man City coach João Cancelo wanted to change clubs this winter. Real Madrid, approached, refused the 28-year-old Portuguese, which allowed Bayern Munich to complete the operation.

The right or left side, who went through Valencia, Inter or Juventus during his career, was loaned to the current 2nd in the Bundesliga, with an option to buy. This would amount to 70 million euros. A significant sum for FC Bayern, which takes care never to spend more than necessary on a player, including Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bayern Munich ready to negotiate Cancelo’s price?

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, who has been heard on all topics lately, from Cristiano Ronaldo to Manuel Neuer, spoke about the case of the Portuguese side of Manchester City, according to revelations from Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano. The Bosnian says he is ready to discuss with the Cityzens the purchase price of the 28-year-old player at the end of the season: “We made it clear to João (Cancelo) that these costs are difficult for us to imagine. But if all the parties absolutely want a solution, we can achieve it. The most important thing is that João feels comfortable in Munich.”

Under contract with Manchester City until June 2027, João Cancelo is currently evaluated by the site Transfermarkt to 70 million euros. That is the exact price of the international call option for the 41 selections. The Portuguese will therefore have to convince Bayern Munich, by his performance, to spend such a sum for his services, or will have to hope that Manchester City lowers their demands on him.
