Il Corriere dello Sport confirms that Juventus are interested in Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo, and talks between Cristiano Giuntoli and Jorge Mendes have intensified.

Juventus are interested in bringing Cancelo back to Turin, and Giuntoli is negotiating with Portuguese representative Mendes. According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the Juventus director has intensified talks with the defender’s agent. Cancelo played for Juventus in 2018-2019 before joining Manchester City in a player-for-money deal involving Danilo. Cancelo is not part of Pep Guardiola’s plans after a season-long loan at Barcelona and, according to Corriere dello Sport, Juventus’s new coach Thiago Motta would be happy to work with the Portuguese international at the Allianz Stadium. Manchester City have set a price of €25 million for Cancelo, but Juventus are pushing for a loan deal with an option to buy. Juventus would also need the Portuguese to reduce his salary. Cancelo earned 6 million euros a season at Barcelona, but the Bianconeri need to lower their salary and can offer him no more than 4.5 million euros a season.
