AC MILAN are among several clubs monitoring Joao Cancelo’s situation at Manchester City.
The Portuguese full-back’s Etihad career has stalled since returning from the World Cup last month.
And the 28-year-old has struggled to get regular games.
He started the defeats against Southampton and Manchester United.
But then he was an unused sub in the two games which followed.
His only other start since the restart was the win at Chelsea – but he was hauled off at half-time by Pep Guardiola.
The City boss has opted to use youngster Rico Lewis and a centre back such as Nathan Ake as his full-backs recently.
That has also seen Kyle Walker left on the bench for the more important games as his difficult season continues.
He is currently tied to the club until summer 2027.
So it would need a huge offer to tempt the champions to sell a player who has been crucial to their recent success.
He arrived at the Etihad from Juventus back in 2019 and has played 98 times in the top-flight.
During that period he has helped City to two Premier League titles and he also has a Carabao Cup medal in his collection.
