Manchester City open negotiations with Barcelona for Arsenal target

Manchester City have reportedly started negotiations with FC Barcelona for Joao Cancelo for a potential summer transfer

The future of the Portugal international at City seems uncertain as there are reports indicating a strained relationship with manager Pep Guardiola.

Therefore, in an attempt to secure more playing time, the full-back was loaned out to Bayern Munich for the latter half of the season.

The German outfit have made it clear they have no plans in securing the defender's services permanently as Thomas Tchel's team consider the price tag (£70m) to be excessive and are hesitant to compete with the purchase option.

On the other hand, it's been claimed that several European giants including FC Barcelona and Arsenal are showing a constant interest in the layer.

According to journalist Florian Plettenberg, direct talks between the CItyzens and La Liga giants have already taken place. However, the Catalans' financial difficulties might make it challenging for them to meet Guardiola's asking price, so a loan move is more likely if the transfer happens.
