Manchester City are open to using Joao Cancelo as a makeweight as part of a deal to sign AC Milan star Rafael Leao, according to The Express.
Cancelo has made 19 appearances for City so far this season but has not featured in their last two matches, with Pep Guardiola continuing to tinker with his backline.
Leao has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the past 12 months, with Chelsea and Manchester United previously interested.
Leao’s AC Milan contract expires in the summer of 2024 and the Italian side are keen on extending his contract.
Leao has scored nine and assisted nine in 25 appearances for Milan so far this season, with his impressive performances in the Champions League also catching the eye
