Juventus sign Valencia defender Joao Cancelo for £36m

Juventus have announced the signing of right-back Joao Cancelo from Valencia for £35million.

The 24-year-old has penned a five-year deal until 2023 with the Old lady, after impressing the Serie A champions while on loan at Inter Milan last season.

Cancelo created 33 opportunities last campaign – the most of any defender in the Italian top-flight.

While he also completed a league high of 38 successful dribbles to help the Nerazzurri secure Champions League football.

Massimiliano Allegri has been busy in the transfer window – already snapping up the likes of Douglas Costa, Emre Can and goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Cancelo will slot into Juve’s starting XI straight away, after Switzerland veteran Stephan Lichtsteiner left to join Arsenal on a free transfer.
