Cancelo will be a soap opera: he wants Barcelona, ​​but Man City is not open to a new loan

This market session risks dragging on a soap opera for the entire summer. It’s the one who writes it Sportreferring to the issue Joao Cancelo. The Portuguese winger spent last season on loan at Barcelona, ​​but remains the property of Manchester City, who in 2019 spent a whopping 65 million euros to take him from Juventus.

Precisely for this reason – we read in the Catalan newspaper – i Citizens they have no intention of selling the former Inter and Juve player on loan again. The English club’s will is to let him go, yes, but on a permanent basis and the price would already be set: with 20-25 million euros Cancelo can leave.

However, for the moment, Barcelona is not going beyond a loan request. The Blaugrana club does not have the resources to make an immediate investment in the Portuguese, so they would be thinking of a new formula: loan with obligation to buy. In fact, in a year, Barça will have solved some of its financial problems and at that point it could pay the requested amount into Manchester City’s coffers.
