Cancelo: 'Juventus a dream'

Joao Cancelo said it is “a dream to be at Juventus, representing one of the biggest European clubs” after his €40.4m move from Valencia.

The Portugal international spent last season on loan at Inter, but they did not activate the €40m option to buy.

“It is a dream to be at this great club,” Cancelo told the official club website in a video interview.

“Representing one of the biggest European clubs makes me very happy.

“Juventus have so many strong players, so I don’t want to make it an individual issue. You have to be a strong player to be in a team like this.

“I hope they can help me to achieve success both on an individual and collective level.”

Cancelo spoke to Coach Max Allegri before completing the transfer to Turin.

“My preferred position is at right-back. Allegri told me he thought I would soon meet up with the rest of the squad, he wants me to give the club a hand to continue the success they had in recent years.

“He told me: ‘You are someone who can help us continue having success.’

“Forza Juve.”
