City want to sign Cancelo as a replacement for Danilo, who joined alongside Walker but has struggled to nail down a place. Danilo has not yet finalised his move away, but it is expected that he will find a new club, which will pave the way for Cancelo.
The priorities in the transfer market this summer are a deep-lying midfielder, to provide support to Fernandinho, and a centre-back, to replace Vincent Kompany and potentially Nicolas Otamendi.
Rodri recently asked for time and space to decide his future, having previously shown City that he was ready to move. Harry Maguire is the top target for the defence, although City do not want to pay the £75m plus add-ons that Leicester are demanding.
