Joao Cancelo reportedly frustrated at Bayern Munich

Joao Cancelo in Bayern’s UCL clash against PSG on Wednesday night.

The Portuguese defender made a shock move from Man City to Bayern Munich on a six-month loan deal this January.

He was fallen down the pecking order due to the emergence of teenage defender Rico Lewis this season.

He made his move to the Allianz Arena to seek more playing time in the latter half of the season.

Cancelo immediately hit the ground running with the Bundesliga giants bagging an assist in each of his first two games.

However, the 28-year-old has failed to start and complete a game with the Bavarians and was an unused substitute against Stuttgart in their last game.

Bayern director Hasan Salihamidzic has the option to make the deal permanent but they are reluctant to cough up €70m for the Portuguese right-back.

“After the transfer was done, we actually thought again about how long we’ve been dealing with Joao. We came up with more than four years. Either our position was filled or we didn’t have the money for it,” Salihamidzic told Bild.

“We’re playing with open cards. This sum is difficult for us to imagine in the next few years. If all sides really want a common solution, you can manage that in the end. He knows that he has been one of our dream players for years.”
