Cape Town - Manchester City are reportedly edging closer to securing the services of Juventus right-back Joao Cancelo as they seek a replacement for Danilo.

The Citizens are thought to be ready to move their Brazil international Danilo on pastures new this off-season and have already lined up Cancelo as an ideal replacement.

Juve appear to be open to the idea of cashing in on Cancelo, with €50 million thought to be enough to lure the 25-year-old Portuguese defender away from the Old Lady.

Reports have suggested the Serie A giants have already themselves identified possible replacements, with the likes of Tottenham's Kieran Trippier and Napoli's Elseid Hysaj being linked.
