Manchester City met Juventus’ asking price for dynamic right back Joao Cancelo by including a player it didn’t really want anymore.

Danilo and $35 million are heading to Turin in exchange for the 25-year-old right back Cancelo, who has consistently produced the top Serie A seasons at his position.

Cancelo’s was the 15th ranked player in Serie A last season according to WhoScored, and is a stunning dribbler.

He doesn’t have the defensive stats of Kyle Walker, but his passing is significantly better. That’s not a huge surprise considering he’s played plenty of right midfield.

He’ll wear No. 27 for Pep Guardiola‘s men.

As a side note, I like the idea of Guardiola getting something out of Kyle Walker as a center back at least a few matches out of the year. Just saying.
