La Liga champions Barcelona are the best-placed club to sign 29-year-old Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo, a target for Arsenal.
According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Joao Cancelo will leave Manchester City in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal and Barcelona are keen on signing the Portuguese full-back, whose market value is €60 million.
And the Catalan giants are the best-placed club to land the player.
Joao Cancelo will embark on a new adventure in the summer transfer window.
The 29-year-old has no future at Manchester City, especially in the wake of Pep Guardiola’s recent comments.
The Portuguese international has turned out 150 times for Manchester City, chipping in with nine goals and 22 assists.
Meanwhile, Cancelo’s situation has captured the attention of several high-profile clubs, including Arsenal and Barcelona.
The 29-year-old has been on Barcelona’s radar for a long time.
And the report has claimed that he is prioritising joining Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
Recent reports suggested Barcelona had opened talks to secure Cancelo’s services.
And according to SPORT, the newly-crowned La Liga champions are the best-placed club to sign the Portuguese international.
But Barcelona will face stiff competition from Arsenal for the Manchester City outcast.
Reports earlier this month suggested that Arsenal had gone ahead of the Blaugrana in the chase for Cancelo’s signature.
Barcelona will unlikely pay anywhere close to €60 million to secure Cancelo’s services this summer.
But with the Blaugrana being the best-placed club to land the 29-year-old, a deal is on the cards.
