Juventus signing Joao Cancelo: Inter Milan important for me

New Juventus signing Joao Cancelo says he is grateful for his time at Inter Milan.

Cancelo has joined the Bianconeri in a €40m deal from Valencia - having spent last season on-loan with Inter.

He said, “Inter was a very important club for me. They helped me to mature, they gave me my first experience in the Italian league and I thank them for that.

“The Italian league helped me to improve my weaknesses, like the defensive aspect, and I'm improving as a player. I want to keep doing that.

“I was in a situation [at Inter] which depended on the transfer market. Inter didn't exercise their option for me, Juve wanted me and always proved they wanted me, and I wanted to come to this team that is one of the best in the world.

“I'm not here to talk about the differences. Juve dominated the Italian league, Inter is a great club. Now I'm a Juventus player."
