Barcelona is keen to secure their permanent signings and there are talks of bringing forward their transfer negotiations to January.

This article delves into the potential transfer of these talented players and the obstacles that Barcelona may face in securing their services permanently.

Barcelona impressed by Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo

Barcelona have been impressed by the performances of Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo since they arrived at the club in September. Cancelo, on a season-long loan from Manchester City, has thrived and the club is eager to make his deal permanent. The same goes for Felix, who is only with the Catalans until the end of the season.

Reports suggest that Barcelona may try to sign both players in January instead of waiting until next summer, as they anticipate their prices will increase due to their improving performances. Barcelona values Felix at €40m, but Atletico Madrid is seeking over €80m. A player-plus-cash deal could be pursued to avoid overpaying, but negotiations are ongoing.

In Cancelo’s case, Barcelona is only prepared to pay €15m, while Manchester City is reportedly seeking €25m. Despite their financial struggles, Barcelona are optimistic that both players want to sign for them. However, they may have difficulty convincing their respective clubs to lower their asking prices.
