While Cancelo himself denies a rift with coach Pep Guardiola, rumors persist in England that there were problems with the player within City. These are said to have meant that the English champions were not only willing to give up the right-back – he was even offered to other clubs.

“My decision only has to do with the fact that I haven’t played much in the last few weeks,” Cancelo said at his presentation in Munich. In England, reports are now circulating that there was not only a problem with Pep Guardiola, but also between Cancelo and those responsible for the city. Accordingly, his general pattern of behavior led to the separation. The Portuguese is said to have been very defiant when he didn’t get enough playing time. This is said to have happened before in his early days in Manchester and almost led to an early sale.

It is interesting: FC Bayern was probably not the only club where Cancelo was an issue. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the full-back was actively offered at Real Madrid. However, the Spaniards decided not to do anything in the winter transfer window. Those responsible should be satisfied with the current squad. Curious – in November persistent rumors about Real’s alleged interest in Cancelo as a replacement for the not uncontroversial Daniel Carvajal made the rounds.

Cancelo is also said to have been an issue at FC Barcelona in the past few days. The Catalans have even been in contact with his agent Jorge Mendes. Ultimately, however, it was impossible for the financially troubled club to pay Cancelo’s salary.

According to Romano, the player’s management initially tried to place Cancelo at Real and Barcelona. Only then did Bayern approach the Portuguese. When the 28-year-old found out about FCB’s interest, he absolutely wanted to switch to the German record champions.
