Cancelo wants swift Valencia return

Defender Joao Cancelo wants to cut short his loan stay at Inter and return to parent club Valencia in January, according to reports in Spain.

The Portuguese international has struggled with injuries and a lack of form this season and has yet failed to start a league games for the Milanese giants.

The 23-year-old only joined the Serie A club late in the summer transfer window but a lack of first-team football means his World Cup place next summer is now at risk.

Valencia-based Super Deporte and Marca both report on the full-back’s desire to return to the Mestalla, while the club have ‘prioritised’ his future for the summer window.
