João Cancelo is out of favour at Manchester City after falling out with Pep Guardiola last season. The former Juventus man spent the later part of last season on loan at Bayern Munich before returning to the treble winners in the summer.

João Cancelo’s time at Manchester City has been nothing short of impressive, despite his problems with Pep Guardiola. Since joining the club in 2019 from Juventus, the Portuguese full-back has established himself as a key component of Pep Guardiola’s system.

Known for his exceptional technical skills, versatility, and attacking prowess. His ability to contribute both defensively and offensively has been crucial in City’s success, creating chances, making runs, and also solid defensive contributions. Cancelo’s performances have earned him recognition as one of the best full-backs in the world, and he will be a solid addition to Barça’s squad.
