Juventus Keener on Manchester City Outcast than Inter

Jorge Mendes is seeking a new home for Joao Cancelo and offered him to Juventus and Inter, finding more fertile ground in Turin. He’s coming off a solid season at Barcelona, which will try to bring him back. Manchester City are eager to offload him, Corriere dello Sport relays (via 90min).

The English champions prefer a permanent deal this time after consecutive loan spells. They demand €20/25M to part ways with the fullback once and for all.

The Cancelo deal is further complicated by his wages, as Juventus would at most be willing to offer him €4.5M annually. He earned €6M during his lone season in Catalunya. In addition, the Bianconeri will try to arrange an advantageous formula and bring him in temporarily at first, obtaining an affordable option to buy.

The Old Lady is in the hunt for a right-back. They won’t be able to acquire Giovanni Di Lorenzo from Napoli. He made amends and confirmed he would stay put in an open letter to the fans.

Our Take on Juventus and Cancelo

Big teams tend to help each other. There might be something in the works here, as it’s a position of need for the Bianconeri. A sizeable investment would be required, and they have been disciplined about salaries this summer, so it won’t be easy even though his team wants to get rid of him. Thiago Motta has coached smaller teams where he couldn’t hand-pick players so far but didn’t necessarily rely on overly offensive-minded fullbacks in his previous stops.
