THE BIGGER PICTURE: According to Fabrizio Romano, City and Barca are now ironing out the final details of a proposed move. Cancelo is expected to join the Spanish giants on loan with an optional buy clause.
AND WHAT’S MORE: All parties hope the deal will be completed in the coming week. Cancelo reportedly agreed personal terms with Barca weeks ago, with the Spanish side his preferred destination.
