Joao Cancelo breaks silence on Man City exit after fall-out with Pep Guardiola

Joao Cancelo has released a farewell video on his official Instagram account, confirming his exit from Manchester City.

Cancelo, who is joining Bayern Munich on loan for the rest of the season after a fall-out with City boss Pep Guardiola over his lack of playing time, said goodbye to the club with a highlights reel of his time at the Etihad Stadium.

Accompanying clips of some of his highlights from his three-and-a-half years at City, Cancelo wrote: “Once a Cityzen, always a Cityzen. Thank-you.” The post was liked by more than 75,000 people, including Cancelo’s City team-mate Aymeric Laporte.

Cancelo will join Bayern for the remainder of the season, with the Bundesliga club having the option to buy the Portugal international for a fee of around £61million when the loan agreement comes to an end.

City are unlikely to buy anyone to replace Cancelo, with Guardiola having enough cover for both full-back positions in Kyle Walker, Rico Lewis, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Laporte and Sergio Gomez.
