City to ask for Skriniar and Bastoni in exchange for Cancelo

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 416

According to the Italian press, if Inter insist on signing Joao Cancelo, Man City will ask for Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni to be included in the deal. That way, City can strengthen their defence despite selling a player.

Inter want to reinforce the full-back positions and continue to have Joao Cancelo, 25, as their target. He is a player the club know, since he was at Inter during the 2017-18 season on loan from Valencia.

The good news for Conte's men is that Manchester City will not object to the Portuguese leaving because he has been inconsistent.

That said, the English club want to get the most they possibly can out of Cancelo. According to the Italian media outlet 'Il Corriere dello Sport', if Inter come knocking again, the Premier League club will ask for Skriniar, 25, and Bastoni, 20, in return.

They are two defenders who are to Guardiola's liking. He is trying to strengthen a back line which has not performed at the level expected due to a combination of Kompany's departure and other injuries.

The Slovakian, whose contract runs until 2023, has been at Inter since the 2017-18 campaign and has played 32 matches so far this term. The Italian, whose contract also runs until 2023, has made 17 appearances.
