Back to Bayern? Joao Cancelo wanted back in Munich if proposed Barcelona move falls through

Bayern Munich have reportedly joined Barcelona in the race for Joao Cancelo with a last-minute offer which could see the defender return to Germany.

According to Toni Juanmartí of Diario SPORT, the Bavarians have made a late move to re-sign Portugal international from Manchester City. The Bundesliga giants are looking to secure Cancelo’s services as a replacement for Benjamin Pavard, who recently departed for Inter. Meanwhile, Barcelona’s attempts to sign Cancelo on loan have hit a roadblock, primarily due to their tussle with La Liga’s Financial Fair Play regulations.

Despite the challenges, it is believed that Barcelona remain confident about sealing the deal, counting on Cancelo’s eagerness to join their squad. The Catalan club haved faced a delay in payment from one of their commercial deals signed with a German firm, which has hindered their transfer plans. However, Xavi’s side remain keen to bring in Cancelo to address their right-back issues.

Barcelona must act fast to land Cancelo, otherwise, it will be a missed opportunity for Xavi Hernández’s side to further strengthen their backline.
