Jorge Mendes sustained the Tuesday a 'summit' with Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany in Portugal to speak on the options 'low cost' that offers the market veraniego for a FC Barcelona with little margin salarial for fichar. One of the names put on the table was the one of Joao Cancel, the one who already was near of the Barça in the wintry market, but the problems with the 'fair financial' of LaLiga made impossible the operation.
Xavi Hernández insists in the need of fichar a right side and a mediocentro in the next window of passes and the one of Barreiro would fit without problems in the diagram of the egarense, thanks to his experience in the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola. The Catalan technician did not have more remedy that leave him leave in January, in front of the insistence of the luso to have more leadership, and is almost sure that the City will look for him gone out in summer to do box with his traspaso.
I cancel already it was to 'shot' of the Barça in January
After some crossing between Joao and Pep, the side opted for leaving to the Bayern Munich to loan by six months. The Bavarians took advantage of the financial problems of the FC Barcelona to remain with the player of 28 years, the one who had preferred to play in Spain this semester, as it confirmed in his moment the journalist Fabrizio Romano.

📌 I cancel it was offered to the Barça in January, but the club could not carry out the operation by subjects of the FairPlay.

Like this, I Cancel it arrived to the Bundesliga and was to title in his first five parties, adding a pair of assistances. However, a bad reaction after remaining in the bench in the party in front of the Stuttgart cost him remain a week out of the eleven by decision of Julian Nagelsmann. The German technician cleared the controversy, ensuring that all had remained clear already and that, from this time on, will have again opportunity to be headline. For the moment it has contributed a so much and four passes of goal in eight apparitions with the Bayern.

A cession, the only alternative for the Barça
Except surprise, the Bayern descartará exert the option of purchase by 70 million euros that includes the loan by six months, by which Joao Cancel will have to return to the Manchester City in summer. Without place in the eleven of Pep Guardiola, to the Portuguese him urge find team and, because of his price of exit, a new cession seems the wisest, although the managerial 'sky blue' will be opened to negotiate.
In this sense, the Barça can take advantage of to manage a loan by a year, being this the only alternative in which it could fit the 'operation Cancel'. Of equal way, the club would have very complicated the work to cover the whole of the wage of the defender of 28 years, which round the 10 'kilos'. Still like this, the decision of the player will finish being key, as well as the management of Jorge Mendes decided to put to one of his figures in Catalonia in summer.
