Juventus target Danilo or Cancelo


Juventus are looking to Spain for Dani Alves replacements, with reports linking them to Valencia’s Joao Cancelo and Danilo of Real Madrid.

Dani Alves is ready to move on after just one season in Turin and a move to reunite with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City is imminent.

According to Sky Sport Italia, a candidate to replace him could be at Real Madrid, specifically Brazil international Danilo.

He turns 26 next month and was signed from Porto in 2015 for €31.5m.

This season Danilo contributed one goal and three assists in 25 competitive games, but wants more playing time.


Another cheaper alternative would be Cancelo, who had already been on the Juventus radar last summer.

Super Deporte suggest the 23-year-old would be an ideal candidate to step in for Dani Alves, especially as he can play in more advanced roles on the right wing too.

Valencia paid €15m to buy the Portuguese player from Benfica in 2015.

Cancelo has a surprising three goals in four senior caps and is currently representing Portugal at the European Under-21 Championship.
