Loaned to Manchester City just at the end of the season, João Cancelo became an element of Xavi’s team. With this in mind, the Catalan club has such a natural appearance that the Portuguese remains handsome for longer.
Holder at eighteen resumes this season in the league with two goals and four passing decisions, João Cancelo is now one of the essential players of the Blaugranas. For the Catalan club, the choice of the Portuguese player’s recruiter is very impressive and present. Remember that FC Barcelona will again be available to adopt a lateral approach to the 2023 season, although it will also be the end of the cycle of the coast of Manchester City.
However, the native of Barreiro has now been in contrast with the Skyblues for several more years, his contrast with the Premier League club expiring in June 2027. According to information from Gerard Romero, Barça wants the Portuguese to commit definitively with the Catalan club from the summer of 2024.
Barça also signed João Cancelo
The Spanish journalist added that the Blaugrana have already come up with a plan to achieve their goals: offering between 15 and 20 million euros to Manchester City to permanently buy the match. Even if we can assume that the Citizens are no longer really counting on the Portuguese in the long term, the amount offered by Barça risks being insufficient.
The platform Transfer market, a reference on the subject, estimates the market value of João Cancelo at 40 million euros, twice as much as Barça’s proposal. The British club has already proven in the past that it knows how to be very demanding in business.
In addition to the case of João Cancelo, Gerard Romero also made it known that Barça intended to extend the adventure with another Portuguese, named João Felix.
