Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo signed for Barca and registered with La Liga
Of course, it was a crazy day at the offices of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper and also at the Arístides Maillol offices. The transfer window is closing with up to six operations in progress, two arrivals, and four departures.
The two signings are the additions of the two Joaos, Cancelo and Félix. Cancelo had been waiting in Portugal for days for Barcelona to have Fair Play room so he could travel to Barcelona once his agent, Jorge Mendes, had agreed to his conditions with the Catalan club.
Late Thursday night, Barcelona made its first offer to Manchester City, and the player arrived in Barcelona during the afternoon. Approximately an hour earlier, his compatriot, Joao Félix, had landed from Madrid.
Also, their agent, Jorge Mendes, was present. Joao Félix, according to ‘Relevo’, had renewed with Atlético de Madrid a few hours before. The move was intended to spread the Portuguese player’s salary over more years of the contract so that Barcelona could pay the entire salary of the forward, who has never been a priority for Xavi Hernandez, unlike Cancelo.
Both players have checked into a hotel in Barcelona after landing at Josep Tarradellas Airport. There, they waited for Barcelona to reach a final agreement with their respective clubs. Around 8pm, they arrived at the Ciutat Esportiva to sign their contracts with the Catalan club. Both arrive on loan for one season with no option to buy, and Barcelona covers their entire wages, with both players agreeing to salary reductions.
Both players have been officially announced by FC Barcelona as players, and La Liga has confirmed their registration. This way, Barcelona secures a right-back for Xavi and an attacking player after the departures of Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembélé.
