Joao Cancelo recently joined Bayern Munich on a surprising loan deal from Man City. The departure of the Portuguese has raised quite a few eyebrows questioning Guardiola’s relationship with the players. The defender released a farewell video confirming his exits highlighting some of his top moments in a City shirt. More than 75000 people including many of his City teammates liked this post.
Is Guardiola the reason behind Cancelo’s exit from Man City?
The Portuguese wingback is regarded to be one of the best in the world at the moment. He also made back-to-back appearances in the Premier League Team of the Season. His untimely loan spell in Germany has started assimilating doubts among the City faithful about the dressing room dynamics. It has also given rise to a lot of speculations about whether the exit is permanent. Cancelo refused to pay heed to any such rumors.
Lack of opportunities?
Man City have always been known to flaunt their squad depth. However, this time around the boon has come back to them. Cancelo, who made 52 appearances in all competition for Man City, played just one entire game after the World Cup. This could have been one of the main reasons for the departure of the 28-year-old. Pep has made his intentions clear about not signing any immediate replacement for the Portuguese. This could be a sign of optimism for City fans regarding Cancelo’s return next season.
