Barcelona (Spain) is trying to send Ousmane Dembele (26) to Paris Saint-Germain (France, PSG) and bring Joao Cancelo (29, Manchester City).
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market, said on his personal SNS on the 2nd, “Barcelona will send Ousmane Dembele to PSG and use some of the transfer fee to bring Joao Cancelo.”
Dembele is now close to leaving Barcelona for PSG. His release clause worth 50 million euros (approximately 71.1 billion won) expired after 31 days, but PSG is trying to pay a slightly higher transfer fee and recruit Dembele.
Dembele himself strongly wants to go to France. Coach Xavi Hernandez said at a press conference after the pre-season friendly match against AC Milan (Italy) that took place that day, “Dembele said he wanted to transfer to PSG. They made great offers. Dembele will be leaving soon.”
On This, Barcelona is trying to move for the scout of Cancelu, who has been interested since January. Cancellu has been degraded to be released from Manchester City (England, hereinafter Man City). Last season, the relationship soured when he complained to manager Pep Guardiola about playing time problems and tried to leave the team in the winter transfer window.
Barcelona also tried to sign him, but Cancelo chose Bayern Munich (Germany). After returning to the team after a loan spell in Munich, he still wanted to leave the club and Manchester City accepted his move.토토사이트
If Cancelo joins Barcelona, it can relieve one of the biggest concerns of the current team, the right fullback spot. Barcelona currently has Sergi Roberto (31) and Sergino Dest (23) on the right side, but they are showing poor skills to appoint them as the starting lineup. Cancelo has been reborn as a top-notch full-back at Manchester City and is recognized for his ability.
Negotiations for Cancelu are expected to begin soon as the transfer of Dembele is currently only a matter of time.
