Barcelona's loan deal for Joao Cancelo from Manchester City has been completed, with the Portuguese full-back set to join the Catalan club on a season-long loan with an option to buy.
The loan fee is reportedly €5 million, while the option to buy is set at €25 million. This means that Barcelona could sign Cancelo for a relatively low price, especially considering his quality and experience.
Cancelo is a versatile player who can play at a right-back, left-back, or even as a winger. He is also a good passer and dribbler, and he has a good work ethic.
He will be a valuable addition to Barcelona's squad, and he could help them to improve their defence and their attacking play.
It is still too early to say whether Barcelona will activate the option to buy Cancelo at the end of the season. However, the fact that they have agreed to a loan deal with an option to buy suggests that they are serious about signing him permanently.
If Cancelo performs well during his loan spell, then Barcelona are likely to exercise the option to buy him. This would be a good deal for both clubs, as it would allow Barcelona to sign a quality player for a relatively low price.
Cancelo should be available for Barcelona after the international break. He will be a welcome addition to the squad, and he will be hoping to help the Catalan club challenge for trophies this season.
