Joao Cancelo has signed a contract extension with Manchester City that will keep him at the club until 2027.

Since signing from Juventus in the summer of 2019, the Portugal international has positioned himself as one of the finest full-backs in the world.

Joao Cancelo was nominated to the PFA Team of the Year last season and has now renewed his contract at the Etihad Stadium with Manchester City for another two years.

According to the 27year old, he said

Manchester City is a fantastic club, so I am incredibly happy to have signed this new agreement.

City players have everything they need to reach their full potential, with amazing facilities, world-class teammates, and an incredible manager who pushes us every single day.

There is nowhere better to play football and it’s a pleasure to work here. I have so much I want to achieve before my career ends, and Manchester City offers me the best chance of fulfilling my ambitions.

This new contract means I now have a complete focus on improving my game and winning more trophies with this team.

According to the comments of Txiki Begiristain, Manchester’s City Director of Football on Joao Cancelo’s contract extension, he said

Joao is the ultimate professional. He absolutely loves football and applies himself every single day in a bid to become better.

He sets really high standards, and any young player should observe the way Joao applies himself if they want a blueprint for success.

Not only does he have incredible talent, but he also displays perfect dedication to this sport. That’s why he can play so many games at such a high level.

His consistency during the last two seasons has been amazing. He is so versatile.

Whether he plays right-back, left-back, or in midfield, he operates at the same high level. That is a dream for a manager.

I am really happy he has signed, and I can’t wait to see him develop in the coming years.
