In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by Man City Xtra on Twitter, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the matter, with many suggesting that Cancelo seems like a promising talent, however, his attitude is letting him down, while others have suggested that City should simply sell the 25-year-old.
Should City persist with Cancelo for another season?
Joao Cancelo ‘wants to leave’ #ManCity, and Pep Guardiola isn’t happy with the player anyway.

It’s a weird one this. It’s like Nolito all over again except Cancelo’s actually a good player and could become much better

Wish he could stay. But if Pep says he isn’t happy with him, it must be something about him as a person, not as a player because quality- wise I think he is an excellent player and good enough for us, he just hasn’t settled in yet. Give the man some time???

What do we think?
Since arriving at Manchester City from Juventus for a £58.5 million fee last summer, Cancelo has made just 11 appearances for City in the Premier League.
As such, it would appear that Cancelo has indeed performed impressively during his time at City, however, it seems that, for some reason, many of these fans have already lost their patience with the right-back.
