Let the roster madness begin!

Daley Blind and Joao Cancelo...we hardly knew ye.

Bayern Munich’s defensive duo that came to the club during the winter transfer window is now headed away for good.

Blind came to Bayern Munich as a depth piece, who fit into the “break glass in case of emergency” kind of set-up, while Cancelo was brought in on loan from Manchester City in an attempt to add some dynamism to the backline, while Noussair Mazraoui was out and also so that Benjamin Pavard could be free to play more as a center-back.

Now, they are both leaving. Cancelo will officially head back to Manchester City, but will likely be sold soon. FC Barcelona is reportedly among the interested parties.

As for Blind, his future is a bit more wide open. There has been talk of him going back to Ajax or even taking the return trip to Manchester United, where his old pal, Erik ten Hag, is the coach.

Whatever the case, both players are no longer with Bayern Munich:

Thank you for your commitment, João #Cancelo and Daley #Blind. ⚪

Servus and all the best for your future!
