Juve strike €38m Cancelo deal

Juventus are down to the details with Valencia, as they agreed to sign right-back Joao Cancelo for €38m after another meeting today.

According to multiple sources, including Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and La Gazzetta dello Sport, a deal is essentially done.

Valencia agreed a slight discount on their €40m asking price and it’s expected to be a definitive sale rather than a loan with obligation to buy.

The 24-year-old impressed this season on loan at Inter, but the club refused to pay the €40m option to make the move permanent.

Juve dived in and struck a deal for the Portugal international, despite interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Cancelo can play in any role down the right flank in defence, midfield or attack.
