Barcelona is attempting to retain defender João Cancelo, who is currently on loan from Manchester City, for the next season.

According to journalist Florian Plettenberg, the club is working on a solution for the Portuguese player, as new head coach Hansi Flick wants him to remain part of the squad.

Barcelona aims to extend Cancelo's loan for another season, with further negotiations with Manchester City planned soon. Cancelo’s contract with City runs until 2027.

Previously, it was reported that City’s head coach, Pep Guardiola, is not keen on keeping the 30-year-old player and is ready to part ways with him.

In the concluded season, Cancelo made 42 appearances for Barcelona, contributing 4 goals and 5 assists. His market value is estimated at 40 million euros by Transfermarkt.
