Transfer Rumors and News

Barcelona’s hopes of keeping Joao Cancelo suffer major blow

Joao Cancelo’s future at Barcelona seems to be in some serious doubt with the rumor mill churning out a few new updates on the Portugal international.

The full-back has already said he wants to stay in Catalunya, with Barca thought to be eager to agree another season-long loan.

However, it seems Manchester City aren’t keen on that idea at all and want to sell Cancelo and offload him permanently this summer.

The Manchester Evening News are reporting that City’s preference is a “permanent transfer” and claims there’s interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia.

However, Cancelo is yet to agree to a move to the Middle East and that’s where things are likely to get very tricky indeed.

Diario Sport think a Saudi club could well “seduce” Cancelo with a lucrative contract, which would also suit City as he’s not in Pep Guardiola’s plans for the future.

Guardiola has already said the three parties must find an agreement that works for all but that will be difficult with City wanting a sale and Barca after a loan.
