Joao Cancelo has agreed to a permanent transfer to Barcelona.
Manchester City right-back Cancelo completes a permanent transfer to FC Barcelona. It is said that the two clubs reached an agreement early on.
Cancelo, a 29-year-old Portugal international, dramatically moved from Manchester City to Barcelona ahead of the end of this summer’s transfer window. Terms are one season rental. It was best for Cancelo, who had a falling out with coach Pep Guardiola, to somehow escape Manchester City, and going to Barcelona was not a bad option for him.레모나토토
Cancelo’s contract requires him to return next summer, and he is under contract with Manchester City until the summer of 2027. However, considering his relationship with coach Guardiola, there will be no room for him if he goes back. When we asked Cancelo about his recent full move to Barcelona, he responded cautiously, saying, “I’m only focusing on my current performance.”
Barcelona prepared a gift for him. Deco, who became Barcelona’s new football director, mentioned the possibility of the club signing Cancelo permanently next summer. And Spanish media ‘El Chiringuito’ reported that Barcelona has reached an agreement with Manchester City for a transfer fee of 35 million euros (about 50 billion won) next summer.
Cancelo left Bayern Munich on loan in the second half of last season and played 21 games, scoring one goal and six assists. However, Munich gave up on recruiting him completely. So he returned to Manchester City, now fully prepared to become a Barcelona player.
Although Barcelona has been under financial pressure recently, it appears that they are very attracted to Cancelo. As expected, he took over the starting position as soon as he joined the team. This season he has played 5 games and already has 2 goals and 1 assist. Scored goals in games against Real Betis and Celta Vigo.
