Will Man City sign Joao Cancelo from Juventus?
Man City have been linked with a move for Juventus defender Joao Cancelo throughout the summer window.
25-year-old Portuguese international Cancelo only joined Serie A champions Juventus last summer, in a 40 million Euro deal from Valencia, after impressing on loan with Inter Milan the season prior.
This week, Italian website Calciomercato have claimed that Man City could be closing in on Cancelo’s transfer.
Fabio Paratici, the director of sport at Juventus, is reportedly in London right now in an effort to sign Romelu Lukaku from Man United.
But Man City are also in talks with Paratici over Cancelo.
Calciomercato suggest that Cancelo will join Man City in a deal worth around 50 million euros.
