Happy to exchange Joao Cancelo for a wad of cash if the right offer comes in, Juventus are going to need to replace the Portuguese at some point in the near future.
Should Manchester City finally give in and agree to pay the requested €60m for the right-back, the Serie A champions will spend some of that money on his successor, who could be a Premier League player.
According to Corriere Torino, Maurizio Sarri and co. have turned their attention to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, currently at Crystal Palace and highly sought after by Manchester United.
The Red Devils have already had one offer reportedly turned down for the England U21 international, and the €50m+ price tag will be the problem for anyone going forward.
On Wednesday, Duncan Castles reported Manchester United have agreed to pay £55m for the player, yet Corriere Torino appear to disagree.
Wan-Bissaka allegedly ‘caught’ the attention of Fabio Paratici, Juventus’ director of football, who is claimed to have been following the Crystal Palace starlet ‘with interest’ and clearly liked what he saw (maybe not his own goal in the dying minutes against France U21s).
There’s no denying the 21-year-old has had an outstanding 2018-19 season at Selhurst Park, but it’s been made clear he won’t be cheap, and it seems unlikely the Italians will go above and beyond for Wan-Bissaka this summer.
Even Manchester United could have second thoughts, with multiple claims of them looking at other targets in case Crystal Palace refuse to budge.
