Bayern München are looking into the possibility of bringing Joao Cancelo to Germany on loan from Manchester City in January, according to Bild.

The German champions have targeted the 25-year-old, who has been limited to just six league appearances for Manchester City this season, as they're looking for a right-back in January.


Bringing in a new player for the right-back position would make it possible to play Joshua Kimmich permanently in midfield and move Benjamin Pavard to his favorite position in central defence.

Manchester City paid €65 million to sign Cancelo from Juventus in the summer.

Bayern have also been linked with Monaco's Benjamin Henrichs.
