Premier League champions Manchester City have made a big bid for Juventus defender Joao Cancelo according to the latest reports coming out of the Italian media.
Manchester City want to strengthen their fullback positions this summer and the Portuguese international right-back is seen as the man for the job.
Joao Cancelo has impressed a great deal since joining the Old Lady last summer from Spanish La Liga club.
The 25-year-old helped the Old Lady to an eighth successive league title in his first year as a Juventus player.
His Juventus form has attracted Premier League interest from clubs like Manchester City and Manchester United.

According to the specific report from Italian transfer news portal Tuttosport, Manchester City have made a £53m bid for Joao Cancelo as manager Pep Guardiola targets serious competition for first choice right-back Kyle Walker.
Apart from Joao Cancelo, Manchester City have also been linked with Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Both Joao Cancelo and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been linked with Old Trafford outfit Manchester United.
The Red Devils are in need of urgent reinforcement at the right-back.
The trio of Diogo Dalot, Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia were the right-back options at Manchester United last season but none of the players convinced manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that they are good enough to be the first choice for the new season.
