Joao Cancelo squad number confirmed

DONE DEAL: Cancelo is officially a Man City player
New City signing Joao Cancelo has been handed the No 27 shirt after completing his move from Juventus.

The 25-year-old right-back became Pep Guardiola’s third signing of the summer following the respective arrivals of Rodri and Angelino from Atletico Madrid and PSV Eindhoven.

Cancelo, a 14-times-capped Portugal international, spent one season at Juventus after spells at Valencia at Inter Milan.

Having risen through the youth ranks with Bernardo Silva at Benfica, Cancelo has earned a reputation as one of European football’s finest attacking full-backs.

He provided five assists during his season at Juventus, where he earned a winner’s medal in both Serie A and the Italian Super Cup.
