Barcelona are eyeing a potential swap deal for Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo, reports claim. The Portuguese international only arrived at City in the summer of 2019, when he was snapped up from Juventus for a fee of £27.4million plus Danilo.
Cancelo is no stranger to a short stay though having played for Benfica, Valencia, Inter Milan, Juve and City in the past six years.
He remains a key part of Pep Guardiola’s plans moving forward, despite the Spaniard’s consistent rotation.
The 27-year-old was on the bench for the Champions League final defeat to Chelsea, as his season ended on a sour note.
Yet he is expected to play from the get-go for Portugal at the European Championships.
Yet the right-back is not the only City player of interest to Barcelona.
Castles also reports that Barca have tabled a proposal to sign Bernardo Silva.
They face competition from Atletico Madrid though as the La Liga champions look to strengthen.
Atleti are willing to send Saul Niguez the other way to the Etihad Stadium.
Bernardo allegedly wants out of City, where he has been in and out of the team.
Having won it all domestically with the club, he is said to want to try something new.
The attacking midfielder still has over four years remaining on his current City deal though.
City are reportedly willing to listen to offers for the likes of Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez as they look to fund moves for Jack Grealish and Harry Kane.
