Guardiola expresses his thoughts on Cancelo's recent lack of game time

The Portuguese defender left Manchester City on loan to Bayern to get some minutes of football but it seems he is destined to be benched

Cancelo joined Bayern on loan from Manchester City during the January transfer window but despite his great start, he has recently lost his place in the Bavarian side. Guardiola has stated that City will assess his situation at the end of the season.

"He's with Bayern Munich,"

Guardiola told reporters.

"At the end of the season we will review the cases - players that are here, not here, loan cases. At the end of the season. Joao is a player for Bayern Munich."

Bayern's sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, claimed that


was benched for the Champions League match against PSG due to a lack of effort in training. Although Bayern have an option to buy Cancelo in their loan agreement with City, it is unlikely that they will be willing to pay the €70 million (£62m/$76m) asking price to sign him permanently.
