Man City full-back Cancelo set for shock Bayern loan

Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo is in line for a loan move to Bayern Munich before the January transfer window closes.

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

Cancelo has had limited game time since returning from the World Cup, with Pep Guardiola changing the shape of his side.

Cancelo started 36 times for City in the Premier League last season, but has had a restricted role at City this term, and has seen Pep Guardiola change the team's shape and formation.

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.
