Manchester City to buy top right defender

Manchester City to buy top right defender

A talented right back from Juventus, João Cancelo may soon join their ranks of the English Manchester City.

Last season, Manchester City took the first place in the championship of England, ahead of Liverpool by one point. Also, the team of Pep Guardiola collected the remaining domestic titles, namely: the Supercup of England, the FA Cup and the League Cup. In the Champions League, the Catalan mentor screwed up again. Having one of the best teams in the world, the Citizens did not go further than the quarter-finals, as they did last year. This time, the Guardiola locomotive got off the rails thanks to Tottenham London.

City’s collapse in the Champions League was a terrible game in defense. Tottenham won the first match at home 1:0, then lost 4:3 on the road, but on aggregate went to the semifinals. If you do not take into account the dramatic denouement of the fight - Manchester City were terrible in defense. The team clearly lacks a quality central defender and a right fullback.

Guardiola just looked at the last position on the last. The Portuguese played an outstanding second half of the season, playing 25 games in Serie A for Juventus. The player gave five assists and scored one goal.

In comparison with Kyle Walker from Manchester City, who gave one assist and scored the only goal - the results are very different. Walker does not suit Guardiola, because he does not have time to work from behind and connect to the attack. In this component, Oleksandr Zinchenko, who plays on the right, impresses Pep much more.

Since the time of Barcelona, Guardiola tried to be part of the fast wing defenders. Then he had Dani Alves, in Bayern - Alaba, and now, for complete happiness, he lacks Cancelo, who can double the flanks in the attack.

According to the journalist of La Gazzetta dello Sport Niccolo Schira, the Citizens have already reached an agreement with Juventus, and also offered the Portuguese a five-year contract with a salary of 5 million euros per season.
