Manchester City transfer news and rumours: Arsenal open talks for Joao Cancelo
- Arsenal open talks for Joao Cancelo over a potential summer move According to a report from Sky Sports, Arsenal have opened talks with Manchester City for the possible transfer of Portuguese international Joao Cancelo this summer. City boss Pep Guardiola is open to letting the 29-year-old leave Etihad. Cancelo joined Bayern Munich on loan for the second half of the 2022-23 season, but the Bavarians didn’t trigger the £60 million buy-out clause included in his loan contract. Arsenal have opened ‘early verbal talks’ for the player; however, Cancelo prefers a move to La Liga – to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
