The situation of Valencia right-back Joao Cancelo at Inter Milan hangs in the balance.

The player, who was on loan at the Italian club this season, has a €35m release clause agreed in the contract, which Inter are keen on activating.

But the issue at the moment is that they do not have the funds to pay the Spanish club. Therefore, Inter are rather keen on taking their time to accumulate the funds via sales of other players.

Once the market gets a bit older as the summer progresses, they then hope to snap up the promising player. But as time will pass by, the difficulties too, could creep up.

Not only could other clubs come into the fray, but the release clause could also be increased. That’s where the Italian club is in danger.

According to a report in Italian outlet Tuttosport, Manchester United are one of the contenders for the player, as Jose Mourinho has the player on his summer wish-list. And it is believed that the Reds will have no problems coming up with a fee for Cancelo.

United are believed to be in the driving seat regarding the right-back, given the connection of the agent Jorge Mendes, who manages both Jose and Cancelo.

But with the Premier League club close to sealing a deal for Porto teenager Diogo Dalot, it is being tipped that Cancelo will be out of consideration.

Elsewhere, reports have also stated that Cancelo could be offered to Wolves, who got promoted to the Premier League this season.

United are eyeing a right-back as a priority, and have identified Dalot as the player to challenge veteran Antonio Valencia for a place. With Matteo Darmian on his way to Juventus, Jose is seeking to bring in a replacement soon.
