Barcelona Transfer News: Joao Cancelo, a defender for Manchester City, has reportedly agreed personal terms with Barcelona.

However, the transfer is still pending the outcome of ongoing talks between the two teams. Following a set of circumstances that resulted in his loan stint at Bayern Munich last season, the 29-year-old right back’s future with the Premier League champions has been called into question.

The Portuguese international’s future at Manchester City became questionable after a furious altercation with manager Pep Guardiola on the training ground. This prompted his sudden departure from the club during the last transfer window. Cancelo may have been essential to Bayern Munich winning the Bundesliga last season, but it appears he is eager to sign a long-term contract with Barcelona and resurrect his La Liga career.

Cancelo has been a target for Barcelona since January, when manager Xavi deemed him a major priority for the team’s defense. The Catalan team has been eager to add to their roster, particularly in light of Ousmane Dembele’s likely transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, which is anticipated to free up some funds for buying him. Barcelona and Manchester City are now in negotiations to settle the terms of the transaction and sign the defender.

Joao Cancelo moved to Manchester City in 2019 for £27.4 million from Juventus, and he quickly cemented himself as an important member of the team. He did, however, spend a portion of the previous season on loan at Bayern Munich because of the aforementioned conflict with Guardiola. Even though he excelled for the German side, Bayern finally made the decision not to exercise the £62 million option to make the arrangement permanent.

Cancelo has demonstrated his dedication on the pitch by participating in three of Manchester City’s preseason friendly this summer, including a significant appearance off the bench in the 2-1 triumph over Bayern Munich in Tokyo. But his desire to sign with Barcelona raises the possibility of a new chapter in his career, one in which he may play a significant role in Xavi’s ambitions.
