Trippier to replace Cancelo at Juve?

Multiple sources claim Juventus are ready to sell Joao Cancelo and Mario Mandzukic, focusing instead on Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier.

The Bianconeri seem to be on the verge of securing new Coach Maurizio Sarri, as he reportedly agreed to terminate his contract with Chelsea by mutual consent and could be in Italy over the weekend.

This means a revamp of the current squad and Sky Sport Italia point to two players on their way out – Cancelo and Mandzukic.

Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport claim Sarri is unimpressed by Cancelo and would be happy to sell, with Manchester City and Manchester United ready to engage in a €60m bidding war for the full-back.

In his place, Juve would go for Trippier, who is considered more suited to Sarri’s style of football.

The Tottenham Hotspur and England right-back had been in talks with Napoli, but they signed Giovanni Di Lorenzo from Empoli for €8m plus €2m bonuses yesterday instead.

It is all part of Juve’s plan to bring more of a Premier League influence to their team, from Sarri to already-secured Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey as a free agent.

Emre Can arrived from Liverpool last summer.
