Surprise operation, the Portuguese says goodbye to Guardiola and goes to Germany
The transfer market offers a new full-back for Bayern Munich, a new adventure for Joao Cancelo. After the Portuguese (Benfica) and Spanish (Valencia) championships, after the Italian (Juve and Inter) and the English (City) championships, here is the new adventure in Germany and in the Bundesliga, in Bayern Munich. All done for a loan until the end of the season and a right to buy around 60 million.
The Bavarians lost their starting left-back, Lucas Hernandez, Theo’s brother, during the World Cup: ligament rupture and season over. The club had already protected itself with the signing of Daley Blind, released after his last return to Ajax, an authentic wild card in the defence. Now a big player from the band arrives to strengthen the team. During the season, under Pep Guardiola, Cancelo collected 26 appearances, with two goals and five assists, but also the last three matches between the league and the FA Cup seen from the bench. Recently, he had only started in the League Cup quarter-finals, which they lost to Southampton. Over one hundred and fifty appearances for City under Guardiola: the English club had bought him from Juve in August 2019 for 65 million euros.
