Barcelona have reportedly wrapped up a deal for Joao Cancelo, with the Portuguese defender bidding farewell to Manchester City.

Barca have been keen on the versatile 29-year-old for some time, with those in Catalunya claiming to have been prevented from pushing through a transfer in January. At that point, Cancelo linked up with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

The German champions opted against completing a permanent deal, meaning that Cancelo returned to the Etihad Stadium. He has been heavily linked with Barca and Arsenal throughout the summer, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that a full agreement is finally in place.

Cancelo will move to Camp Nou on an initial season-long loan that includes a purchase option for 2024. It is claimed that a move could be pushed through in the next few hours, with an unsettled star in Manchester forcing his way through the exits.

Cancelo is tied to a contract at City through to 2027, but there was little chance of him seeing those terms out once the faith of Pep Guardiola had been lost. He will now be looking to kick-start his career with La Liga heavyweights – with Barca’s next game set to see them take in a trip to Osasuna on Sunday
