Even with Kyle Walker already at the club, Pep Guardiola appears to want to recruit Joao Cancelo for Manchester City.

At least, the Italian media think so, and reports of a €60m offer already being made have circulated around Europe.

However, it appears that bid hasn’t been accepted yet (since nothing has come of it), and Gazzetta dello Sport reckon an alternative could be worked out by Juventus, one that would suit both parties down to a T.

The Italian newspaper explain the €60m valuation placed on Cancelo isn’t set in stone, as the inclusion of a player, in this case Danilo, could help lower the outlay.

The Brazilian is on the exit path this summer, sporadically used by Guardiola during the 2018-19 campaign, and a move to Italy is high on his wishlist, with Inter previously linked.

Gazzetta believe an offer of €40m + Danilo (whose value is around €20m) should do the trick, allowing Juventus to replace Cancelo in the process while still making back their expenditure from last summer.

For now, however, all these talks are on standby as Fabio Paratici and co. are waiting to hear what the next manager, who is expected to be Maurizio Sarri, wants to do with the current squad.
