Cancelo left Juventus in the summer of 2019 for a transfer fee of 65 million euros (approximately 92 billion won) and wore a Manchester City uniform. He has established himself as a key defender with outstanding performances. He was selected as the ‘PFA Team of the Year’ for two consecutive seasons in the 2020-21 season and the 2021-22 season and was evaluated as a top-class defender. He made 154 official appearances for Manchester City alone, scoring 9 goals and providing 23 assists.

However, he was sidelined by feuds all season. After he came back from the World Cup, there were a lot of substitute appearances and bench waiting in the second half. As a result, Cancelo became dissatisfied and transferred to Munich through the winter transfer market in January.

At the time, ‘Daily Mail’ said, “Cancelu said he would leave the club, and brought a loan offer from Munich. Relations with manager Pep Guardiola continued to deteriorate after the World Cup, and Manchester City allowed a loan transfer so as not to interfere with the team. did,” he explained.

Cancelo was substituted after moving to Munich. He played 15 German Bundesliga games (1 goal, 4 assists), 4 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) matches (1 assist), and 2 DFB Pokal matches (1 assist). And he rose to the top through a last-minute flip in the league.

Cancelo is satisfied with life in Munich, but a full transfer is unlikely to happen. The Cancelo contract included an optional transfer option worth 70 million euros (approximately 99 billion won). However, Munich can’t afford to spend a lot of money because they need scouting for other positions.

With this in mind, European transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on the 29th, “Munich will not trigger Cancelo’s signing clause.” “Man City will allow Cancelo to leave this summer. The club is satisfied with the full-back situation they have. There is. I have no intention of keeping Cancelo next season.”

He continued, “Cancelu is one of the players Arsenal values ​​highly. As of now, negotiations have not taken place. We have to wait and see what happens to the negotiations between the two clubs after the transfer of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko.”

Arsenal signed Jesus and Zinchenko from Manchester City ahead of this season. And they competed for the league championship with Man City, and their performance was decisive. As a result, it is unknown whether Man City will again give their players to rival clubs.
