Barcelona have sealed the loan signing of Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo from Atletico Madrid and Manchester City respectively.
After a long summer of speculations for both players Barcelona have finally sealed the moves for two of their top transfer targets in the closing hours of the transfer window.
Joao Felix arrives in Barcelona having fallen out of favor under Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid. He has failed to live up to expectations that saw him make a staggering €120m move from Benfica to the Spanish capital in 2020 and spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea where he occasionally showed glimpses of his brilliance. He returned to Atletico at the end of the season as Chelsea decided against signing him out rightly.
Joao Cancelo on the other hand has been one of Manchester City’s standout performers since his €60m euro move from Juventus helping the club win multiple titles along the way, but also fell out of favor under Pep Guardiola last season and was eventually loaned out to Bayern Munich in January, but returned back to the club in the summer after Bayern decided against making his move permanent.
The Portuguese duo arrives in Barcelona looking to put their respective club careers back on track having publicly declared their desire to play for the La Liga giants.
Both players will return to their parent club at the end of their loan deal as their moves do not include permanent move options
