João Cancelo confirms Barcelona future plans

Barcelona loanee João Cancelo has on Wednesday provided an insight into his hopes for next season.

Defender Cancelo, for his part, is currently in the midst of a loan stint in Catalunya’s capital, from Premier League giants Manchester City.

To this point in the campaign, it has proven a largely successful arrangement for both parties, with the Portuguese international having established himself as a key figure in boss Xavi’s Barcelona squad.

All told, Cancelo has racked up 30 appearances across all competitions, notching a none-too-shabby three goals and four assists along the way.

Speculation in the media, in turn, has long pointed towards the Blaugrana brass preparing an offer to their counterparts at Man City, to extend the full-back’s stay beyond the summer.

During an attendance at the premiere of the club’s new Barca One documentary on Wednesday, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his future at the Camp Nou was put to Cancelo himself.

And the 29-year-old appears to be in no two minds when it comes to his plans.

As per journalist Victor Navarro, after being asked ‘do you expect to continue at Barca next year?’, Cancelo simply replied:

“Yes, yes”
