Joao Cancelo’s loan move from Manchester City to Barcelona could be completed by the end of the week.
The move for the 29-year-old is deemed to be just a matter of time by Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano and will include a season-long loan with an option to buy at the conclusion of the current campaign.

Joao Cancelo set to leave Etihad Stadium for second time
Cancelo is reportedly waiting to receive the green light from both City and Barca before flying out to Catalonia tomorrow.
The move signals the second time Cancelo will have left the Cityzens after he joined Bayern Munich on loan for the second half of last season in January.
By leaving the Etihad Stadium, the Portuguese ace missed out on winning a Champions League winners medal along with his fellow City teammates and actually came on as a second-half substitute for the Bavarians against his parent club last season.
Barca boss Xavi Hernandez is crying out for a new right-back after USMNT star Sergino Dest left the Nou Camp for PSV Eindhoven on a season-long loan earlier this week.
