Joao Cancelo finally answered all the questions in this season. The big question was answered when the player will officially be in Manchester City uniform for the 2019-2020 season. Cancelo immediately revealed the reason for leaving Juventus and chose to join the team made by Josep Guardiola.
Before experiencing the English Premier League, Cancelo has spent two seasons in Italian Serie A with two different clubs, where the first played at Inter Milan, and the second with Juventus. His best achievement in Italy is clear with Juventus, here Cancelo successfully won his first Scudetto title.
Cancelo’s own role was quite crucial in the success of Juventus to become the eighth successive Serie A champion. When nurtured by Massimiliano Allegri, Cancelo recorded 34 displays in all competitions, and scored one goal and five assists.
Interestingly here, when the extraordinary note did not make Cancelo last long at Juventus. Ahead of the Premier League transfer window was closed, Manchester City managed to convince both parties by paying 28 million euros plus giving Danilo free to Juventus.
The public here wonders why Cancelo decided to leave Juventus and want to play with Manchester City. He also revealed the reason, where the most important thing is about the big challenges that await him with Manchester City.
“Like a player who is the same as another, I like new challenges and of course I am aware of the competition that can be found here. Kyle Walker is a great player, but I think with more competition, you will grow bigger and develop as a player,” Cancelo said.
Facing the challenges, and over time, Cancelo felt that his ambition to become a right-back as well as the best player in the world could be realized. Then the Manchester City environment and the atmosphere of the English Premier League strongly supports these ambitions.
“My dream has always been to be the best player and the best right back. I think, playing with the best can make you achieve that. Manchester City has the best players, and is the best place for me to develop.”
“Everyone knows, and for me it’s true that the Premier League is the best league in the world without a doubt, I look forward to playing for my first opportunity here. I love the stadium and its atmosphere, “Cancelo continued.
It is certain that this moment will be the first in Cancelo’s career, where he has only played in Italy and Spain. In the Spanish La Liga, Cancelo had become a Valencia player and the beginning of his own career occurred in the Portuguese League to defend Benfica.
