Although Turin newspaper Tuttosport continues to sound pretty optimistic about João Cancelo’s move to Manchester City, they don’t make it sound like it’s happening very soon.
The outlet writes today that the Premier League champions should now have no competition for the right-back.
The only club who could fight for Cancelo would be Manchester United, but to do that, they would have to open a negotiation for Paul Pogba with Juventus, something they’re not keen on doing.
However, before moving for Cancelo, Manchester City need to sort Danilo’s situation first. It’s claimed that the club are focused on selling him.
Tuttosport claims that Manchester City even tried to include Danilo in a deal for Cancelo, but that wasn’t accepted by Juventus’ board.
After sorting out the Brazilian’s situation, then City would offer €60m for the Portuguese international. The newspaper makes it sound like this will be enough to make Fabio Paratici happy, since he would make a profit of €28m after having the player for only one season.
