Agent Of City Fullback Offers Player To 2 Clubs As Sale Price Is Set At Just £21M

Superagent Jorge Mendes has offered Manchester City fullback Joao Cancelo to Juventus and Inter Milan, according to La Stampa (via Sportmediaset).

The Portuguese international has returned from his loan spell at Barcelona but he has no future at the Etihad under manager Pep Guardiola.

Cancelo has played for both Juve and Inter (on loan) in the past, but it’s unlikely that he will make a return to Italy.

The defender earns approximately £200,000 a week, and, while La Stampa claim he would be prepared to take a pay cut in order to sign for a team in the Champions League, his salary is still too high for the two Serie A clubs.

Cancelo will be allowed to leave for a rather modest price

After impressing on loan at Barca and having performed well at the European Championships with Portugal, you would have thought that there would be plenty of suitors.

However, it is believed that City are prepared to sell him for as little as €25m (£21m). He still has three years left on his contract so the decision has been made to offload the player for a low fee and save some money on his wages.

Where could the City defender end up?

Cancelo has expressed an interest in staying with Barcelona. Speaking last month about his future, the 30-year-old said:

“I really like being in Barcelona, ​​I am very comfortable My family, my daughter, and my wife are also comfortable in Barcelona. We hope to be in Barcelona next year.”

At the moment, though, it doesn’t appear as if the La Liga side have the funds to sign him on a permanent basis. In terms of alternatives, Arsenal and Chelsea were mentioned as potential destinations back in April but the two London clubs are not currently in the market for a right or left-back. An offer from Saudi Arabia would probably be welcomed by City.
