Cristiano Ronaldo was said to have warned his compatriot Joao Cancelo that he would regret joining Manchester City.
The 25-year-old Portuguese star joined the Premier League defending champions on a six-year deal valued around €65 million from Juventus last summer.
Six months down the lane, the defender has now been informed by the club that he has become surplus to requirement at the Etihad Stadium.
Daily Star reports that City told the player he can leave this month after just 17 appearances across competitions as La Liga side Valencia are the only ones showing interest in the player.
Cancelo was brought in to replace Danilo who joined the Old Lady for £34.1 million, but his influence has not really been felt at the club.
Meanwhile, City boss was quoted saying he ‘didn’t know’ if Cancelo was happy or not when asked about the player in a press conference.
