JUST IN: Man City’s Cancelo in shock move to Bayern

Manchester City’s full back Joao Cancelo is set to make a shocking move to Bayern Munich on a loan deal till the end of the season with an option to buy.

Cancelo, 28, is expected to conclude medicals in the next 24-hours before the end of the January transfer window.

The surprising move comes as Cancelo has had difficult weeks at Manchester City this season with limited playing time especially after returning from the World Cup.

The deal, which also includes an option to buy the full-back at £61.5m (€70m) has been agreed.

Cancelo’s representatives are understood to have brought the interest from Bayern to City and, given the emergence of Rico Lewis and the performances of Nathan Ake at full-back, City have been willing to allow Cancelo to move.
