Defender Leaves Man City As Guardiola's Side Finally Sign Cancelo

Paulo Dybala

Manchester City are discussing a deal with Juventus over a possible deal for the Italian's Portuguese right-back Joao Cancelo, which would see Danilo head to Turin in exchange.

Pep Guardiola's squad will also pay 28 million euros for Cancelo.

Goal can confirm that the former Real Madrid full-back will earn a basic salary of €4 million (£3.7m/$4.5m) per year, plus additional bonuses if certain sporting criteria are met.

The Premier League champions have been keen to strengthen their options at right-back this summer, with the club identifying Cancelo as their number one target.


The Portuguese worldwide only became a Juventus player last summer following a €40m (£37m/$44m) switch from Valencia.

A non-playing member of the Portugal squad which won the Nations League this summer, Cancelo has scored three goals in 14 worldwide appearances.

Juventus are set to earn €30m (£27m/$33m) as part of the agreement, with Danilo arriving to replace a man who has always been on City boss Pep Guardiola's radar.

The Brazilian has picked up five domestic trophies during his time in Manchester, including two Premier League titles, and seemingly approves of the move in the hope of landing more playing time and silverware.
