Joao Cancelo’s spell at Bayern Munich has gone from bad to worse, with the on-loan Manchester City star set to miss the biggest game of the season.
The Portuguese international joined the German giants on loan in January, but has failed to make an impact at the Allianz Arena. He has made just four appearances in the Bundesliga, and has been an unused substitute in the last three matches.
Now, it has been revealed that Cancelo will miss Bayern’s biggest game of the season, the Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain. The 25-year-old has been ruled out of the match due to a thigh injury, and is expected to be out for at least two weeks.
It is a huge blow for Bayern, who had been hoping that Cancelo would provide some much-needed creativity in the final third. The former Valencia man had been tipped to make an impact in the Bundesliga, but his lack of game time has been a major disappointment.
Cancelo’s injury is the latest in a long line of setbacks for the Portuguese star. He has struggled to make an impact at Manchester City since joining from Juventus in 2018, and his loan move to Bayern was seen as a chance to revive his career.
However, it appears that the move has not worked out as planned. Cancelo has failed to make an impact in the Bundesliga, and his injury means that he will miss the biggest game of the season.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Cancelo. He is due to return to Manchester City at the end of the season, but it is unclear whether he will be given another chance at the Etihad Stadium.
For now, Cancelo will be hoping that he can make a swift recovery from his injury and get back to full fitness. He will be desperate to make an impact in the Champions League, but it appears that he will have to wait until next season to do so.
