Why Does Bayern Need Cancelo? And Why Did He Leave Man City?

The loan of Joao Cancelo from Manchester City to Bayern is the most sudden deal of the winter transfer window. The path from the first rumors to the medical examination was overcome in a few hours on January 30th. Cancelu will stay in Munich until the summer. Bayern have a buyout option for 70 million euros.

Why was the player who played the most outfield for Man City last season so easily released? And why does Cancel need Bayern?

The news about the lease, which is shocking at first, lacks logic.

Possible conflict with Pep

There are at least two factors that explain the sudden departure of the Portuguese. The first is the conflict with Guardiola. The Daily Mail as a publication is, of course, not the best source, but Jack Gohen, who works there, is trustworthy (especially since he works specifically for Manchester). His insider – Joao’s relationship with Pep deteriorated.

Joao lost his place at the base just after the World Cup. Before him, the Portuguese played more than all City defenders. Despite a tight schedule, Cancelo only started three games. In one of them (against Chelsea), he was replaced already at half-time. The key explanation is the form after returning from Qatar.

It is important to recall that Cancelo has already asked to leave – similar thoughts arose during the first season of 2019/20 at City. Then Pep decided the issue by unexpectedly transferring Joao to the left side. Added to this was the role of a false fullback. Kansel did not have to constantly shift the ball under the right – from the central zone he could freely pass from the working leg. Pep’s idea worked great because of the variety of Joao’s tricks: he could transfer to the other flank, cut the defense, and hang into the penalty area.

Characteristically, it was Joao who approached the club with a loan offer – City only has one proven full-back left, but Cancelo still does not see himself in the new structure. For him, playing practice is naturally a matter of life and death. When João doesn’t get it, you can’t hide your displeasure.

Bayern has difficulty on the flanks of the defense – especially on the right

The situation on the left is tolerable. Alphonso Davies is not having the best season of his career, but he is playing normally, without blinding flashes or frightening failures. He is covered by Daily Blind, who terminated his contract with Ajax with a scandal and in January 2023 joined Bayern as a free agent until the summer of 2023.

The right side is more difficult. Benjamin Pavard is almost certainly spending his final season at Bayern. He could have been sold back in the summer of 2022, the German edition of Sport1 reported that Pavard was unhappy with the position and would like to play in the center of defense. He played in the autumn when De Ligt was out for a short time with an injury. And the rest of the time he competed for a place at the base with Nussair Mazraoui, who came for free from Ajax before the season.

To summarize: Bayern got a strong player in a problematic position, Nagelsmann will work with a player who has long liked him and who is able to improve his positional attack, and Man City has not for the first time humanly let go of a player who wanted to leave.
