Barcelona president Joan Laporta has offered another update on the futures of loanees Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo.

There’s been lots of talk about the futures of both players already, with Barca thought to be keen to keep hold of the duo permanently.

Signing both will be a problem for Barca, due to their financial issues, but Laporta seems confident the two players could continue at the club.

“Their agent, who is the same, and both clubs have already oriented us on the figures that should be met to conclude the deals and bring them to Barca,” he told EFE.

“We are interested in both of them not being on loan but a part of this club. We’ll see how it progresses, signings will be assessed on the right time. I think both Cancelo and Felix are cases from which all parties involved will end up satisfied.”

It’s still difficult to see how Barca can afford to land both players next summer. There’s already been speculation Barca could try to sign Felix on another loan with a purchase option and will try to negotiate a cut-price fee for Cancelo.
