Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo joined Bayern Munich on a loan deal in January and has now been offered to Real Madrid.

Joao Cancelo has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City, who are looking to get rid of him permanently in the summer. A report from Defensa Central claims that Real Madrid have been offered the chance to sign the 28-year-old during the summer transfer window.

Bayern Munich have the option to sign the player permanently. But it seems that they are not prepared to exercise that option yet. The defender has always admired Real Madrid, and he would be keen on the move. The player has been linked with Barcelona as well.

Cancelo has been a key player for Manchester City since joining the club. But it remains to be seen with Real Madrid are prepared to offer him an exit route at the end of the season. There is no doubt that the Portuguese international is a quality full-back who will add a new dimension to the Real Madrid side.

Dani Carvajal is in his twilight years and Real Madrid will need to add more depth to the position. Cancelo is versatile enough to play as a right-back as well. Although he is not the best defender around, he is extremely impressive going forward and will contribute significantly to the offensive phase of Real Madrid’s play.

The opportunity to join Real Madrid will be a tempting proposition for the 28-year-old, and he is likely to be excited to move to Santiago Bernabeu. The Manchester City defender has played in Italy, England and Germany. He will be hoping to test himself in Spanish football now. Interestingly, Real Madrid rejected the chance to sign him in January before he joined Bayern Munich.

Cancelo is at the peak of his powers right now and will be looking to make an immediate impact in La Liga if the move goes through. Given his stature at Manchester City, he is likely to be available for a very reasonable price this summer and could prove to be a bargain acquisition for Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants will have to bring in a number of players in the summer, especially in the midfield and attack. They could certainly use a bargain signing to shore up the defence. Cancelo has played for clubs challenging for major trophies every season and will be aware of the demands at a top club. He could prove to be a good fit for Caro Ancelotti’s side.
