I don’t want to return to Manchester City…Barca is on the verge of complete failure to transfer to ’70 billion won’
“Barcelona want to extend the stay of Kancelu but do not have the financial means to meet Manchester City’s (Man City) demands,” Spanish media outlet Sport reported on Monday (April 18).
Kancelu joined City from Juventus in 2019. He quickly became an integral part of City’s core with his defensive and offensive versatility.레모나토토 도메인
Trouble came out of nowhere last season. Kancelu was openly unhappy with his reduced playing time. His relationship with manager Pep Guardiola only got worse.
The details were made public. After witnessing Kante’s frustration and dissatisfaction with his teammates, Guardiola reportedly asked the club hierarchy to release him.
He was forced to leave the club. Kancelu returned to City in January after a loan spell at Bayern Munich, only to join Barcelona on loan again.
Personality issues aside, the skill was there. Kancelu didn’t need much of an adjustment period to fit in at Barcelona. He scored two goals and provided one assist in 14 games across all competitions this season.
His satisfaction was high. “I want to achieve great things with Barcelona, because this is the dream club I’ve always wanted to play for,” he said.
“Coach Xavi Hernandez has given me freedom. I like that. I will adapt to everything he asks me to do,” he added, pledging his loyalty.
A full transfer to Barcelona was highly likely. In some circles, it was claimed that Barcelona had already reached a verbal agreement with City to buy Kancelu outright next summer for €35 million.
According to the report, City value Kancelu at €50 million. They are open to negotiations, but are clear that they will not sell cheaply.
Barcelona are not interested. “A one-year loan extension with a mandatory buyout clause of €35 million is the only solution, but Barcelona are not willing to do that,” according to Sport.
