Man City enter the battle for £50m-rated Red Devils long-term target

Citizens join the race to sign Juventus star Joao Cancelo and ready to compete with Man United for the footballer. Pep Guardiola wants to improve the back-line, and his primary target is Portugal international who has an excellent season and proves his worth one more time.

Kyle Walker already 28-year-old, Danilo linked with several clubs, and they need back-up. Spanish manager will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Red Devils also preparing to make an offer during the transfer window.

Joao joined the Bianconeri from Valencia in 2018 with a €42m deal. He is one of the best right-backs in Serie A and unchanged figure for the club. In this campaign, Cancelo already played 33 matches, scored one goal and made eight assists in all competition.

It is a fantastic consequence, and he can do much more during this season. The Portuguese defender has contracted with the Old Lady until 2023, and his release clause is around €50m. His price could increase and become much more during this campaign.

The 24-year-old right-back is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to reach the UEFA Nations League semi-final which is already a significant achievement for the footballer. Man City had impressive results in this campaign as they won the Premier League and Carabao Cup one more time.

Citizens also reached the FA Cup final, and they have to face Watford this week. English club heavily linked with Wolverhampton midfielder Ruben Neves, Benfica starlet Joao Felix, Sporting attacker Bruno Fernandes and Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar.
