City, on the other hand, need competition for Kyle Walker as Danilo looks set to depart the Etihad.

And according to Tuttosport, both Manchester clubs are keen on the 24-year-old who only moved to Juve last summer.

Cancelo started 22 games in Sere A but it is claimed manager Massimiliano Allegri, who is leaving at the end of the campaign, has never been convinced by him.

The Portuguese international’s future in Turin is still in doubt and Man Utd And Man City could look to capitalise on that with a bid of about £53million.

The Red Devils probably have a more immediate need to splash the cash and Cancelo could appeal as he can also play on the wing if required.
