Barcelona are setting their sights firmly on the future, with sights set on securing the permanent signings of João Félix and João Cancelo, the electrifying Portuguese pair currently dazzling at the Camp Nou on loan deals. Super agent Jorge Mendes, representing both players, has fueled the fire, confirming 

"Barça plans for both to stay at the club beyond this season, they want them."

Felix the wonderboy

Félix, the 23-year-old wonderkid, arrived from Atlético Madrid in a straight loan move, instantly injecting his creativity and goalscoring prowess into the Blaugrana attack. In just 17 appearances, he's already bagged 7 goals and 3 assists, seamlessly integrating into Xavi Hernández's attacking system. His 1.3 key passes per game and 3.1 shots per game highlight his directness and attacking intent, traits desperately craved by the Catalan giants.

Cancelo Premier League's beast

Cancelo, the versatile full-back, has been equally transformative since joining from Manchester City. His loan spell has seen him seamlessly adapt to Barça's possession-based style, providing a potent attacking outlet down the right flank. In his 19 appearances, he's contributed a remarkable 5 goals and 4 assists, while his 3.8 successful crosses per game and 88% pass completion rate underline his technical precision and attacking influence.

Financial Fair Play concerns linger for Barcelona, but their determination to secure this Portuguese powerhouse duo is evident. Reports suggest they're willing to negotiate with Atlético Madrid and Manchester City, with figures of €40 million for Félix and €15 million for Cancelo being touted. While these figures might seem audacious given their current financial constraints, the potential long-term impact of these signings is undeniable.

Félix and Cancelo perfectly embody the kind of players Barcelona are desperately seeking: young, hungry, technically gifted, and capable of injecting dynamism and creativity into their attack. Their impact has already been undeniable, with Barcelona unbeaten in all competitions since their arrivals. Nicknamed the "Joya Doble" (Double Jewel) by the Catalan press, the duo has injected a wave of optimism into the Blaugrana faithful.

Securing their permanent signings would represent a major coup for Barcelona, not just in terms of on-field talent, but also as a signal of intent. It would demonstrate their ambition to return to the pinnacle of European football, with this Portuguese powerhouse duo playing a pivotal role in that journey. The question remains: can Barcelona navigate the financial hurdles and make this dream a reality? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the pursuit of Félix and Cancelo is a statement of intent, a Blaugrana double down on their quest for future glory.
