MANCHESTER CITY face competition from Bayern Munich for Joao Cancelo.
City boss Pep Guardiola has made the Juventus defender a priority as he looks to strengthen the squad that won the domestic treble last season.
The Premier League champions have so far failed to match Juve’s £54million valuation of the full-back, allowing the Bundesliga giants to move in, according to Calciomercato.com.
Talks between the clubs have been going on for some time, which seems unusual for City as they usually get business quickly.
Reports also claim City are either pushing for Danilo to be part of the deal or looking to sell him to another club to help raise funds to get the deal over the line.
But the Serie A don’t fancy the Brazilian as City struggle to generate any interest for the former Real Madrid defender.
And the longer it takes to get a deal done, Bayern will look to steal a march on City and table an offer for the 25-year-old.

After retaining the Bundesliga title but failing in Europe, the Germans have spent over £100m on defenders Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard.
The 14-cap Portugal international only moved to Turin last year from Valencia after a year on loan at Inter Milan.
But should Cancelo move to the Etihad, it would leave City with huge strength in the right back position for the next few years.
