How Barcelona Will Lineup With Joao Cancelo

This article will tell you about the lineup Barcelona will have with Joao Cancelo at the back

Joao Cancelo has played for various big-name clubs in Europe, including five European Champions. The defender began his career with Benfica, a club located just across the river from Lisbon, where he won the league, domestic cup, league cup, and a Super Cup.

Valencia, a La Liga team, saw his potential and his three seasons in Spanish football proved they were not mistaken in signing the right defender. Cancelo subsequently proceeded to Italy, where he played for Internazionale and Juventus for a season each.

He moved to the Premier League and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in 2019, where he spent three and a half seasons after spending the second half of the 2022/23 season on loan at German heavyweights Bayern Munich.

Xavi Hernández is fully aware that Joo Cancelo is not your typical right back. The Portuguese defender, like Alejandro Balde on the left, enjoys both attacking and defending.

With time, he has developed the ability to play at left-back and even in midfield, which he did on several occasions while at Manchester City. Barça has added a right back and several more players.
