Barcelona is reportedly close to securing the signing of Joao Cancelo from Manchester City on a season-long loan deal with an option to purchase.
According to reports, there is already a pre-agreement in place for the loan signing.
Barcelona, Manchester City, and Cancelo’s agent Jorge Mendes will meet next week to finalize the deal.
Barcelona has been actively pursuing a new right-back all summer, and Cancelo has been their preferred target.
Despite initial concerns about the finances involved, Cancelo’s desire to move and Mendes’ insistence have helped progress the deal.
Personal terms between Cancelo and Barcelona have already been agreed, and with the pre-agreement in place with City, the move is expected to be completed next week.
Cancelo will join his former Manchester City teammate Ilkay Gundogan at Barcelona if the deal goes through.
