Barcelona reinforce their attacking potential!

Versatile wing defender Joao Cancelo will be the new acquisition of Barcelona! The 29-year-old Portuguese has spent the past six months on loan at Bayern and is owned by Manchester City.

Joao Cancelo is one of the top 10 full-backs in modern times, as evidenced by his career, during which he played for top clubs - Inter, Juventus, Manchester City and Bayern. In addition, the Portuguese is a key performer in the national team, where he won the Nations League in 2019, and has also repeatedly participated in major forums.

Such an awesome player turned out to be unnecessary for Pep Guardiola. All this is due to the difficult nature of Cancelo and his inability to compromise. It turned out that the conflict that took place last autumn between the player and the coach had not been settled, so Joao was forced to look for a new club. But if he were more calm, he could take the treble with Manchester City.

And now the Portuguese will follow the path already trodden by the players of the Cityzens and become the new player of Barcelona, which, against the backdrop of the departure of Jordi Alba and the injury of Jules Kounde, urgently needed a wing defender. Yes, there is a young Alejandro Balde on the left, but the right wing is left to the veteran Sergi Roberto, and he is not able to create sharpness in attack. Because of this, the creative potential of the Catalans suffers greatly.

This problem should be solved by Joao Cancelo, who can cover both the right and left wing of the defense. Given Barcelona's financial difficulties, for the time being, they are taking the 29-year-old Portuguese on loan with an option to buy next summer. The player himself has already gone to the capital of Catalonia to sign the relevant papers. Let us remind you that the Spanish league is not new for him, since in the 2014-18 season, Cancelo defended the colors of Valencia.

One of the many transfer sagas of this summer ended successfully. Manchester City got rid of an unnecessary and toxic player, Barcelona received a great squad boost, and Cancelo himself will continue his fairly successful career, which was temporarily under threat of suspension.
