We admit that when Zero Hora ruled out Manchester City’s chase for Everton last week, we thought this saga was over.
They claimed the Premier League champions don’t want to spend a lot this summer, and therefore they wouldn’t move for the player.
But it turns out that the rumour is back, and perhaps it’s Manchester City’s fault.
That’s because on Saturday, the club’s Brazilian Twitter account had a picture with the national team players who belong to City. And one of Gabriel Jesus’ images had him hugging Everton.
That was more than enough for people to start questioning if the player would finally make the move, after years of rumours.
Now Rádio Grenal reports that Manchester City are one of the ‘main interested sides’, but Grêmio still couldn’t receive an official offer for the player.
They also recall that last year, Pep Guardiola had a phone call with Everton, although the story has been denied by the forward.
They don’t want to let go of this story just yet.
