Joao Cancelo may be heading back to Spain, and his current club is being linked with a young Frenchman.

Cancelo, 25, seemed like a home run of transfer when Man City acquired him from Juventus in a swap deal for Danilo, but the fit hasn’t matched the theory.

Instead the two players have played similar minutes in league and Champions League play, Cancelo topping Danilo in cup competitions.

Sport is reporting that Cancelo is keen on returning to Spain, where he played with Valencia before moving to Serie A with an Inter Milan loan.

Meanwhile, a report from French site Foot Mercato claims City may take advantage of Marseille’s need to make some money.

Boubacar Kamara has been linked with City for some time. Foot Mercato says Kamara isn’t angling to leave his boyhood club, but Marseille is in a “delicate financial situation.”

The 20-year-old center back has also proven adept at defensive mid for Andre Villas-Boas’ second-place OM. He’s passing at 86 percent, 2.8 tackles per game, 2.1 clearances, and 1.4 interceptions

Kamara has 79 first team appearances with three goals and three assists despite not turning 21 until November.
