The news will be a big boost to Barcelona in the final week of the transfer window. The lack of a right-back has been a real issue and Cancelo should go straight into the team.
Joan Laporta has already admitted he’s expecting two players this week, with Cancelo set to be the first arrival before the window closes.
It’s still not clear if Barcelona will be able to sign another player, although rumors about a move for Atletico’s Joao Felix refuse to go away.
