Barca sporting director Deco has issued a stern reminder that winning games takes priority over permanent deals for loanees Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix.
With 2023 still unfolding, Deco emphasizes a day-to-day focus on securing victories. While pleased with Felix's contributions, Deco insists it's not the right time to discuss a permanent deal.
Despite their contributions, both players have faced criticism for inconsistency and lapses in concentration. Felix's lack of effort has been questioned, while Cancelo's overlapping runs have left gaps exploited by opponents.
These concerns, coupled with the hefty €70 million price tag for both players, make a permanent move next summer far from guaranteed. Barcelona's performance throughout the remaining season will ultimately determine the feasibility of such a deal.
