Spanish media has reported that Barcelona is all set to complete the signing of Valencia full-back Joao Cancelo.

The fees is reported to be around 30m Euros, but it will be reported only at the end of the season.

Cancelo will become the third player in a year to switch from Mestalla to Nou Camp after summer moves for Andre Gomes and Paco Alcacer.

The move might not happen in January, as Valencia is keen to keep hold of the defender atleast till end of the season as it fights relegation, but summer transfer window will see the move go through.

Cancelo had also attracted interest from the likes of Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
