Xavi revealed the reasons for not signing the Portuguese star

João Cancelo, the Portuguese star, has been one of the players considered by Barcelona in this transfer season. Xavi Hernandez, the head coach of the Barcelona football team, said that the team is still interested in signing Cancelo, but financial restrictions have made this deal difficult.

Manchester City full-back Cancelo spent the second half of last season on loan at Bayern Munich and despite his successful spell at Manchester City, it still looks like he has no future with the club. Barcelona want him but Xavi reveals the club’s financial issues could prevent a deal from going through.

Xavi said: “The board knows what we need, but the attraction of Cancelo depends more on our financial situation.” There are still a few days left until the end of the transfers and we have to see what will happen.

Cancelo still remains in Manchester, but his name cannot be seen in any of his team’s games.
