Manchester City seal Joao Cancelo signing

Manchester City signed Portuguese global right-back Joao Cancelo from Juventus with Brazilian full-back Danilo heading in the other direction to join the Italian champions.

City were keen to recoup the £26.5m they paid Real Madrid for Danilo two years ago.

New Manchester City signing Joao Cancelo admits Bernardo Silva had a big say on his choice.

The 25-year-old, who reportedly moved to the Etihad Stadium on a fee of 60 million pounds, has signed a 6-year contract, which will keep him at City until the summer of 2025.


"For me the Premier League is the best League in the world without any doubt, I'm looking forward to playing my first game here".

He joined Italian champions Juventus from Valencia for £35m in 2018 after a season on loan at Inter Milan.

"Joao is a fine player and an excellent attacking full-back who will provide us with a real threat on the right-hand side", said City director of football Txiki Begiristain.

The full-back revealed he had spoken to his compatriot prior to completing his switch to Manchester, with Bernardo having described City as an "amazing club".


Danilo, who won two Premier League titles with City, said: "It's been a pleasure to be part of the success City have enjoyed in my time here". The Premier League is a competition that's always fascinated me and one I've always liked.

Last season, Cancelo played 34 matches and scored 1 goal for Juventus while Danilo scored 1 goal in 22 matches for Manchester City.

He also help his country to win the inaugural UEFA Nations League title with Portugal this summer.
