Manchester City are prepared to offload Brazilian fullback Danilo in the summer, so as to open the door for them to sign Juventus’ full back Joao Cancelo, according to the latest reports from the Sun.
Juventus are said to be set to cash in on £50m rated Cancelo if the chance comes.
So Cancelo arriving Etihad obviously depends on whether Danilo can find any suitors in the summer.
Inter Milan have previously shown their interest in the Brazilian fullback, but City wants to recover the full £25m they gave to Real Madrid two years back.
Cancelo would unquestionably be an upgrade over Danilo.
The Portuguese international is an attack-minded fullback, and he should settle in well in Pep Guardiola’s system.
Cancelo is still just 25, and he is presently at the peak of his career and has his best years ahead of him.
For around £20 million plus Danilo for Cancelo looks like a decent bet.
It remains to be seen whether Juventus would take such a bargain.
If that happens, then it would be win-win for everyone concerned as the Serie A champions are looking to cash in on Cancelo.
