Barcelona initially announced the departures of João Félix and João Cancelo this Sunday.

Both players were on loan from Atlético de Madrid and Manchester City, respectively, for the past season. Shortly after, the club deleted the social media posts that communicated this "farewell" to the two Joãos.

It is worth noting that the loan agreements end this Sunday, June 30, but it is widely accepted that the Catalan club has not yet ruled out the possibility of retaining the two Portuguese internationals. Negotiations are currently ongoing with both Atlético de Madrid and Manchester City to explore the feasibility of extending their stays at Barcelona. The club's management is keen to assess all possible options before making a final decision.

The initial announcements and subsequent deletions have sparked considerable speculation among fans and media alike. Many are wondering about the reasons behind the hasty removal of the posts. Some speculate it could be a strategic move by the club to keep their options open, while others believe it might indicate complexities in the ongoing negotiations.

The potential retention of João Félix and João Cancelo is seen as crucial for Barcelona's plans for the upcoming season. Both players have made significant contributions during their loan spells, and their presence could be vital for the team's success. João Félix has added creativity and flair to Barcelona's attack, while João Cancelo's versatility and defensive prowess have been highly valued by the coaching staff.

At the moment, only the announcement of Marcos Alonso's departure remains public, as it is certain that the Spanish international will continue his career elsewhere. Alonso's exit is part of the club's broader strategy to reshape the squad, focusing on both maintaining key players and making necessary adjustments for future competitions.

Barcelona's management is expected to make further announcements in the coming days as the situation with João Félix and João Cancelo becomes clearer. Fans eagerly await updates, hoping for a positive resolution that would see the talented duo continue to wear the Barcelona jersey.
