‘Please take him!’, ‘Switch with Ferland Mendy’ – Man City fans react as Real Madrid identify €60m-rated star as top target


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Real Madrid might prioritise signing Joao Cancelo this summer, with a deal worth €60 million possible.

Joao Cancelo has spent the second half of this season on loan at Bayern Munich, having fallen out of starting XI favour at Manchester City.

The Portugal full-back had penned a contract extension with City in January last year, tying him down to 2027.

But Cancelo’s time at Bayern has reportedly not convinced the Germans to pursue a permanent deal, creating uncertainty about his future.

According to Spanish outlet Fichajes, Real Madrid are interested in a move for Joao Cancelo and will submit a bid of around €60million (£52.8m) to Manchester City for his services.

The report claims Madrid are eager to improve their current first-choice full-backs Ferland Mendy and Dani Carvajal, hence the interest in the Portuguese.

Los Blancos like the versatility of Cancelo, who has made 13 appearances with only eight starts since joining Bayern in January.

The report shared on Twitter gathered a number of replies from a wide range of Man City supporters.
