Right-back João Cancelo completed his sensational switch from Juventus to Manchester City and is looking forward to beginning his new journey.

The 25-year-old has bounced around from Inter to Valencia to Juve to City in the last four years and is hoping to solidify his position with the English treble winners.

“In the last four years, I have been at four different clubs,” Cancelo said. “I’ve always been improving, and my aim is to become the best, and I think I can do this here.

“I dream of being the best player in the world in my position, and Manchester City is the place to do that.

“Man City has great quality players so I will try and bring my own quality and improve on my weaknesses. I’ve already seen in training the quality the team has.”

“Bernardo is a great player. We have a great relationship. For me, he is one of the best players in the world. It’s a pleasure to play with him.

“Ederson is a year older than me, so we never played in the same team at Benfica, but I admire him. He is a great goalkeeper. City have great quality players, so I will try and bring my own quality and improve on my weaknesses.

“I believe a lot in this club. Now and in the future, it will be one of the top clubs in the world.”

Manchester City will begin the Premier League season early Saturday when they take on West Ham in London.
