In a strategic move, Barcelona is preparing to table a conclusive bid for the Manchester City defender, Joao Cancelo.

Over his illustrious tenure with Manchester City, Joao Cancelo showcased his prowess in a total of 98 appearances, registering 5 significant goals that contributed to the team’s successes.
The contemporary evaluation of Joao Cancelo’s market worth, meticulously calculated by Transfermarkt.com, stands at an impressive sum of 50 million euros.
The Portuguese international has admirably represented his nation in 44 matches, embellishing his journey with 8 crucial goals.
As the current month unfolds, Joao Cancelo’s intentions to part ways with Manchester City are abundantly clear, with his primary destination of interest being none other than Barcelona.
