FC Barcelona have been fighting about this for a long time and can finally breathe a sigh of relief, because Joao Cancelo will undergo a pre-transfer medical on Friday, Ashraf Benayad reports.
FC Barcelona tried to sign Joao Cancelo in the winter. However, the fact that the Camp Nou team was eliminated from the Champions League at the group stage was an obstacle.
On the other hand, the player wanted to fight to win these elite competitions, which is why he joined Bayern Munich.
But in Germany, this mission was not successful, and the national champion did not decide to buy him from Manchester City. Also, Pep Guardiola does not see him in his team, so in the event of a suitable offer, he should have been approved for the transfer.
This one has finally arrived and it comes from FC Barcelona.
The player is likely to arrive in Catalonia on Thursday, while he will undergo medical examinations on Friday, according to Ashraf Ben Ayed.
If successful, he will sign a loan contract until 30 June 2024. In addition, the contract will include an option to buy for €25m.
The Portuguese is the missing piece in Xavi’s puzzle.
He joined Manchester City from Juventus in 2019 for €65m.
During his loan period to Bayern Munich, he participated in 21 matches, scoring one goal and six assists.
Initially, Cancelo’s medical examination will be Friday ✅✅✅
