Valencia pair set for Juve?

Juventus are reportedly ready to make a double swoop for Valencia defensive duo Joao Cancelo and Ezequiel Garay, say reports.

According to Deporte Valenciano, the Bianconeri are willing to sanction €45m to complete the signing of both players – who they have been linked to this month.

Last week Plaza Deportiva reported Los Che would accept a bid of €25m plus bonuses for Portuguese full-back Cancelo, who signed from Benfica in 2015 for €15m.

The 23-year-old has made 73 La Liga appearances for Los Che and has scored three goals in four caps for Portugal, and after Juve missed out on Danilo and Dani Alves left on a free, there is a vacancy in their squad.

Valencia paid €20m for Garay from Zenit St. Petersburg this summer and would be willing to recoup this money should the Argentine wish to leave the club.

Neither player is on new Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral’s clearout list, but they believe the deals would make economic sense for the club.
