Manchester City right-back Kancelu has completed his move to FC Barcelona. The two clubs have reportedly finalized an early agreement.
The 29-year-old Portugal international made the dramatic move from City to Barcelona ahead of this summer’s transfer deadline. The deal was for a one-season loan. After falling out with Pep Guardiola, it was in his best interest to get out of City somehow, and Barcelona was not a bad option for him.
Kancelu is contractually obligated to return next summer and is tied to City until the summer of 2027. However, given his relationship with Guardiola, there’s no way he’d have a spot if he returned. When asked about his recent move to Barcelona, he was cautious, saying, “I’m just focusing on my performance at the moment”.토토사이트
But Barcelona has a gift for him. Barcelona’s new director of football, Deco, has hinted that the club could make a move for the player next summer. And Spanish outlet El Chiringuito is reporting that Barcelona have agreed a €35 million fee with City for next summer’s transfer.
Kancelu spent the second half of last season on loan at Bayern Munich, scoring one goal and providing six assists in 21 appearances. However, the Bavarians refused to buy him outright. So he returned to City, and now he’s ready to become a Barcelona player once and for all.
Barcelona have been struggling with financial pressures of late, but it seems they were very attracted to Cesc. He’s already scored two goals and provided one assist in five games this season. He has scored against Real Betis and Celta Vigo.
