Man United in pole position to sign €55m-rated Serie A defender

Red Devils are leading the race to sign Juventus footballer Joao Cancelo and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. Man United have problems in the back-line as Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young already up to 33, Matteo Darmian linked with Serie A clubs and they need replacement.

Portugal international is a great option in this situation as he had an impressive campaign and proved his greatness one more time. Ole Gunnar Solskjær set to spend considerable money on the footballer during the summer transfer window.

Man City are also eager to sign him, and there will be a battle for the player. Cancel0 joined the Italian club from Valencia in 2018 with a €42m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and played several matches amazingly since joining.

In this season, Joao made 34 appearances, scored one goal and provided eight assists in all tournament. It is an excellent result, and he can improve his consequences during the next campaign. The 25-year-old right-back has contracted with the Bianconeri until 2023, and his release clause is nearly €55m.

He frequently plays in the national team and also helped them to win the UEFA Nations League title which is already a big success for the defender. Probably Portuguese footballer will accept the correct offer from the Norwegian coach. Man United had terrible results in this season as they finished the Premier League in a sixth position and kicked out from the Champions League and FA Cup. Red Devils already signed Swansea winger Daniel James.
