Although they carry two parties and half, and that still is very soon to dictate sentence, in the FC Barcelona already would be considering the possibility to retain to Joao Félix and Joao Cancel. They will be in the City Condal until 30 June 2024, when they win his respective cessions, and the intention is that they can remain of permanent way. It will not be free and in the dispatches know it very well, by what will have to anticipate.

It is not a secret for anybody that the Barça assumed a lot of risks with the 'conditions' of the cession of both. Llegarón Through a simple loan, without having to pay an economic compensation neither include an option of purchase for next summer. It was the only form that could assume his landing, but now confront to the need to negotiate with the Athletic of Madrid and the Manchester City to remain with the players.

The 'signings' of Joao Félix and Cancel will not be free

In this order of ideas, from 'Sportive World' have signalled that from the dispatches of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper are taking out accounts to see how assume the continuity of both, conscious that they will be operations very difficult to carry out. It is worth it to remember that, with his renewal until 2029 before leaving to the Barça, to Joao Félix put him a clause liberatoria of 350 million euros.

They will not sell him by that mount, is clear, but the 'colchoneros' himself want to recover part of the investment that did by him in 2019, when they paid to the Benfica €127m because they still remain for amortising some €54m. In this sense, the Atleti will try to cover the mount that it has not amortised and, besides, generate profits. 'MD' aims that they would ask during the summer around 80 'kilos' to free to the Portuguese attacker.

It is thus that from the Cívitas Metropolitan always have showed adherents that it leave to the Premier League. They are conscious that they can take out a good cut of his sale, although up to now the posture of the player always has been very clear. Only it thinks in the Barça and already was key to be able to desatascar the negotiations in the past market of signings estival and recalar in quality of loan. In 2024, it will be the Atleti the one who have the sarten by the mango.

I cancel, more accessible?

On the other hand, in the case of Joao Cancel the forecasts are more asumibles, although equally complicated for a Barça that has -constantly- economic problems and of Fair Play financial. Has agreement with the Manchester City until the summer of 2027, without clause of rescission, and would ask around €25m to free him. It is the same mount that they pretended to include in the option of purchase of the cession, but the Barça finished descartándola so that it could be included in the limit salarial.

In definite, will be rocky operations and complicated. It will remain to see if the club is able, really, to assume them, but the first step is that the players finish the season with good feelings and being important. Both have fallen of foot in the approach of Xavi Hernández, but is very soon to dictate sentences. In April or May, probably, will take the definite decision to negotiate with Atleti and City properly.
