He is regarded as the driving force behind Manchester City’s rise. Even until the first year of the transfer in the 2019-20 season, he did not stand out and was pushed back 먹튀검증 by Kyle Walker, but changing his position to left back became his goddamn move. Because he had more strength in offense than defense, he showed perfect synergy with manager Pep Guardiola, who placed fullbacks more aggressively. Showing the standard of an inverted wingback, Cancelo quickly grew into the best leftback in existence.
However, starting from the World Cup in Qatar, his form declined. His strong point, offensive power, has declined somewhat, while his defensive ability, which has been constantly pointed out, has gotten worse. In the six league matches played after the World Cup, Cancelo started only once. Nathan Ake and Rico Lewis took his place, and Cancelo’s strong position faltered.
Eventually, he pushed for a transfer. Wanting regular playing time, Cancelo spoke to manager Pep Guardiola and in the process asked for a transfer. Manager Guardiola also accepted his opinion. Bayern Munich approached him, and negotiations proceeded quickly. So, Cancelo joined Munich on loan during the transfer market last winter.
Life on loan in Munich seemed to be going smoothly. He made his starting debut in a cup match against Mainz and recorded 1 assist. In the following league debut against Wolfsburg, he made a good start by posting 1 assist.
However, little by little, the position declined. In the match against Union Berlin, he started from the bench and only played 12 minutes, and was put in at the end of the second half when the victory was solidified in the second leg of the round of 16 of the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Cancelo also indirectly complained about the reduced playing time. After his last game against Union on Berlin, he posted on social media, “I did my best. God did the rest.” In response, coach Julian Nagelsmann opened his mouth about the reduced playing time of Cancelo. “Cancelu has never played a back three at Man City. We don’t use a back four now,” he said. He said that he did not fit the current Munich tactic of using a back three.
He used to be a world-class wingback, but now he has become an obscure position. If this is the case, it is highly likely that Munich will not pursue the complete recruitment of Cancelu. If so, he will return to Manchester City next season, but it is unclear whether Guardiola will moderate him.
In this situation, Barcelona showed interest. Albert Masnu of the Spanish media ‘Sport’ said that Barcelona, who lack a right-back, are watching Cancelo’s situation. There are no professional right-backs in the current Barcelona squad except for Sergi Roberto. As such, Cancelo could be a suitable option for Barcelona.
