The Football Manc Cave

Focusing on the football news in Greater Manchester

Can Man City’s swap deal be the final piece of the Champions League jigsaw?

Three teams will benefit from from Joao Cancelo's move to Man City as the twists and turns of the transfer window continue to unfold.

Juventus have had their hands full with Manchester clubs this summer. However, this deal with Manchester City is set to be completed shortly.

Man City have been looking for a new right-back this summer. Pep Guardiola has managed to strengthen his squad even more after reports that Joao Cancelo from Juventus to Man City has been completed.

The Daily Mail reported that the fee for the Portuguese full-back is £32million, plus the 28-year-old Brazilian Danilo.

Danilo made only 11 Premier League last season, and 2 in the Champions League. It is clear that the Brazilian is not part of Guardiola’s plans. Kyle Walker, 29, has been a great right-back for Man City. However, as he aged, he is being selected as Man City’s experienced centre-back, leaving a big hole in his former position.

Joao Cancelo, 25, is a Portuguse national player 7 trophies to his name. Ranging from club to country, he plays a huge role in winning sides.

Times of change

It is important for the conservation of Man City’s reign that they bring in players with the ability and mentality to win. Especially when Guardiola is beginning to bring youth players into first-team football. Phil Foden and Oleksandr Zinchenko we eased into the squad last season and will likely feature heavily this season.

The Man City outfit look all the more ready to conquer Europe. With very few weaknesses in the squad, patching one up with a world’s best cannot do the side any harm.

Juventus, however, will be looking to use the funds for Cancelo in their bid to sign Man Utd’s Romelu Lukaku. Meaning that all three clubs (Man Utd, Man City, Juventus) will be getting what they desire.

Guardiola is getting a world-class right-back to cover a slight weakness in his squad. Sarri is getting an experienced squad player in Danilo, who may flourish in Turin more than Manchester, as well as getting the funds to bring in Lukaku.
