Benfica should consider Joao Cancelo loan move

Benfica Blog
Benfica should already be looking on how to bolster their squad for next season and one position that the club needs to strengthen is the right back spot. Benfica will continue to sell assets and one particular European club that has been a regular in the stands scouting the club is Manchester City, the English club has been suspended from European play for the next two years by UEFA and should have an abundance of players available to other clubs, one of these such players could be Portuguese right back Joao Cancelo.

Benfica who currently have an often injured Andre Almeida and not yet ready youngster Tomas Tavares in the right back spot would receive an immediate upgrade with a loan acquisition of its former Seixal academy player. Benfica should ask to include Cancelo on any deal the two clubs would make for a Man City linked player like Ruben Dias and the club could make sure that City pay a substantial amount of Cancelo's £4.16M annual salary to fit within the clubs budget.

Cancelo has not been a regular with Pep's City squad appearing in only 11 league games to date and 24 total games across all competitions scoring on one occasion. The 25 year old moved from Benfica permanently in 2015 after appearing in only two games with the main squad to Valencia after spending a one year loan deal with the Spanish side for €15M. An addition of Cancelo to the squad would be a coup by President Luis Filipe Vieira and show the fans that the club was serious of not only winning their domestic league but making a run in Europe as well.

Joao Cancelo needs a place to play regularly after stops at Valenica, Inter Milan, Juventus and Manchester City and Benfica needs to look into how to bring the player home someone else beats them to him.
