Man City player now claims his “fantastic” teammate is better than Cristiano Ronaldo
Speaking to 1 PARA 1, the 29-year-old made the remarks.
And what about Bernardo Silva did Joao Cancelo say? Now let’s examine…
Joao Cancelo’s remarks regarding Bernardo Silva
After helping Manchester City win five trophies in 2023, the Portugal international thinks his compatriot is actually the best Portuguese football player right now.
Pep Guardiola has credited Silva with helping the Citizens win the FIFA Club World Cup, the Premier League, the FA Cup, the UEFA Champions League, and the UEFA Super Cup.
“In my opinion, Bernardo is the best Portuguese player right now,” Cancelo stated in reference to Silva. He is an amazing player, in my opinion. I like Bernardo a lot.
He is aware of that on a personal and professional level. There aren’t many players like him, in my opinion. He is occasionally mistreated by Portuguese people as well as those of other nations.
Given that Cristiano Ronaldo is still playing and has scored 53 goals to date in 2023, it is telling that Cancelo believes Silva is the finest Portuguese football player playing right now.
Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva might not team up at Manchester City in the future.
Despite their obvious great bond, it’s possible that the two will never play together for Manchester City again.
According to a report from SPORT in Spain, Cancelo may be replaced by Barcelona’s No. 3 Alejandro Balde. Despite their financial difficulties, the Spanish powerhouses are keen to convert Cancelo’s loan into a long-term agreement.
The defender is reportedly seeking at least €30 million (£26 million) from Manchester City.
Cancelo is anticipated to depart the Etihad Stadium in 2024, so be sure to keep an eye on it.
