Bayern Munich: The development of João Cancelo
This brutal end to the adventure therefore surprised many observers. To explain it, some sources have mentioned bad relations between the Portuguese international and his ex-coach. This Tuesday evening, João Cancelo however swept away these explanations at the microphone of Movistar+. “It’s a lie to say that I argued with Guardiola. I didn’t feel important for the team in the last games and I spoke to the coach to make a decision. The best option was to leave, I have nothing against the club. I’m grateful because they gave me everything and I won’t forget them”he said after the final whistle of PSG-Bayern.
The 28-year-old didn’t stop there, however, and also addressed rumors of Real Madrid’s interest in him. Again, the native of Barreiro (Portugal) dismissed these allegations out of hand: “I did not receive any offer from them (from Real editor’s note) in January. If the rumors say that, I don’t know… If a club like Real Madrid wants you, it’s a pleasure, it also means that I’m doing things right”
