Manchester City are reportedly set to hijack the deal for Real Madrid right back Danilofrom Chelsea.
The Guardian reports that City have agreed a fee with Madrid for the player to move. The Brazilian is expected to provide competition for recently acquired Kyle Walker from Spurs.
The fee is in the range of £26.5 million with add-ons taking it to £30 million. This means Pep Guardiola is hoping to spend as much as £80 million for just the right back role. The Spaniard released Gael Clichy, Pablo Zabaleta and BacarySagna so full backs were an important part of his summer plans.
