Joao Cancelo signs two-year Manchester City contract extension

Joao Cancelo has signed a new contract that will keep him at Manchester City until 2027.

Cancelo’s deal was set to expire in 2025, but he has penned a two-year extension with the reigning Premier League champions.

Portugal international Cancelo, 27, who joined from Juventus in a deal worth £60million in 2019, has made 106 appearances for City, winning three major trophies in as many years.

Cancelo 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 team-mates and an incredible manager who pushes us every single day.

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “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, 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.” 

Since joining City in the summer of 2019, Cancelo has played 106 games and won three major trophies.
