Manchester City are closing in to sign a new full back after reports claiming they’re getting Joao Cancelo. The Portuguese international will arrive from Juventus on a deal worth 30 million Euro plus City’s versatile right back Danilo.
Reports from Football Italia also said that Cancelo has already waving goodbyes to his teammates at Juve. He reportedly will be heading to officially compete his move towards Man City anytime soon.
The attacking full back is a player who City have been keen on getting in a while now. His playing style is certainly suitable to the way Pep Guardiola is looking for in a full back.
Not only able to play in one side, Cancelo is actually capable of playing both flanks or even as winger. His attacking qualities can be a big asset for Man City’s offensive possession based football.
Meanwhile, Juve themselves are looking to sell the player as they need funds after making many high profile signings recently. The Turin giant are also happy that they can still get an immediate replacement in Danilo.
Danilo is also a versatile full back, who can play both right or left without much difference. He is set to sign a five year deal with Bianconeri with wages worth 4 million Euro per season.
