Manchester City star Benjamin Mendy jokes around with Joao Cancelo on Instagram

Manchester City have now officially confirmed the signing of Joao Cancelo from Juventus.

The Portuguese defender will be the Citizens’ third summer signing and Danilo has moved in the opposite direction to Turin.

But interestingly enough, the signing happened shortly after Benjamin Mendy posted a cryptic message on Twitter, possibly hinting that Cancelo was already in the building.

And sure enough, the club announced his arrival not long after that.

So Mendy, the joker that he is, took to Instagram to continue the joking around, stating how it was him who made it all happen, calling himself “agent Mendy” in the process.

And just to confirm the whole story and Mendy’s possible role in making the signing happen, Cancelo himself replied to the snap saying how he’s now finally arrived.

It was a pretty funny exchange between the two Manchester City players and it seems that the Portuguese man is already gelling quite well with the rest of the squad.
