Milan Keep Tabs on Manchester City Wingback Cancelo

Having been forced to sit on the bench more often than not at Manchester City, fullback Joao Cancelo is seemingly unhappy at the club and wants a way out. Cancelo has not featured regularly since returning from the FIFA World Cup, with Pep Guardiola opting for Rico Lewis and Nathan Ake instead.

Latest information from The Sun indicates that Milan are keeping a close eye on the Portuguese wing man, who is contracted at the Etihad Stadium until the summer of 2027. The right-back signed a contract extension in February last year – less than 12 months ago.

Contrasting reports from relay of a potential swap deal involving Rafael Leao and Cancelo, but considering the Leao’s soaring market value, it looks unlikely Milan will accept any such offer.

The Rossoneri have struggled on the right wing defensively this season, with Sergino Dest not performing at the level expected, and both Davide Calabria and Alessandro Florenzi out with injuries. This has left Milan handicapped at the back, and the addition of enigmatic Cancelo would alleviate some of their defensive problems.

While no contacts have taken place as such between the two parties, only time will tell how this saga pans out.
