Fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports that Inter Milan are not willing to give the go-ahead for a swap deal between Joao Cancelo and Milan Skriniar.

According to recent reports by Calciomercato, Manchester City are increasingly keen on a player-swap deal regarding City’s right-back Joao Cancelo and Inter’s centre-back Milan Skriniar.

However, Inter boss Antonio Conte is reportedly not satisfied with the deal, as he rates the Inter defender higher than the £40.5 million-rated Cancelo.

In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by Man City Xtra on Twitter, some City fans have, somewhat surprisingly, agreed with Conte, suggesting that Cancelo was a poor signing by their club last summer, while others have stated their belief that Skriniar is the one who is overrated.

Manchester City achieved what was then their best ever Premier League finish in the 2009/10 season. What position did they finish?

What do we think?

Although Cancelo has made just 11 Premier League appearances so far this season, according to WhoScored, he has performed impressively when he has played, averaging a match rating of 7.06.

Similarly, over the 25-year-old’s six Champions League fixtures he has also performed admirably, earning a match rating of 6.91.

As such, the overwhelming opinion that Cancelo has been a failure at City would appear a little surprising.
