Man United close to deal for speedy full-back, talks at advanced stages

Serie A Giants Inter Milan are reportedly in search of capable replacements for their full-back Joao Cancelo who is heavily linked with a summer switch to Old Trafford. The player is on loan at San Siro from Spanish side Valencia. However, he might end his stay with the club by the end of the season according to reports.

There have been talks between his representative and Manchester United representatives over a possible move to the former Premier League Champions by the end of the season.

United’s defense has been lethargic throughout this season, thereby, putting much pressure on David De Gea who saved the team’s blushes in so many matches this season. In a way to solve the team’s defensive crisis, United manager José Mourinho has set his eyes on the defender and he hopes to lure him to the theater of dreams in the summer.


Having seen the player being heavily linked with United, Inter Milan are now in the market for a new player who would serve as his replacement and the Italian giants are looking at the prospect of signing Atletico Madrid’s Simeone Vrsaljko to the team this summer.

According to Tuttosport, the Croatian star is one of Milan’s top transfer targets when the summer transfer window begins. Though Diego Simeone is yet to give his verdict on the rumors linking the player out of Spain, Milan stand a great chance of luring him to San Siro stadium.
