Manchester City Deal

A deal to bring Juventus defender Joao Cancelo to Manchester City could be expedited, according to reports.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Serie A champions’ sporting director Fabio Paratici is flying to London to try and push along negotiations with Man City with a €50million deal expected to be struck.

Cancelo is clearly “close” to a transfer to the Etihad with Juventus already looking for a replacement.

As per Tuttosport, the Turin-based club are still chasing Tottenham and England defender Kieran Trippier, but Spurs want £40million for the 28-year-old.

Valencia’s Cristiano Piccini, Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira, Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo and Djibril Sidibe of Monaco are all understood to be on the radar of Juve.

The Premier League champions though could complete their first major signing of the summer in the next week with Cancelo, who is also being tracked by Manchester United.

Last week Sky Italia stated that United had asked about taking Cancelo as part of a deal which would see Paul Pogba return to Juventus.

Paratici is said to have held talks with United chiefs face-to-face about signing Pogba, with Cancelo considered as a makeweight in the deal.

The Blues meanwhile are open to letting Danilo go, but they also want to recover most of the £25million they paid for the Brazilian back in 2017 and will make sure Cancelo is a done deal before the Brazilian can leave.
