Back on Monday, Brazilian outlet UOL brought a strong update on Arsenal’s pursuit for Gabriel Jesus.
The outlet claimed the Gunners already held a meeting to sign the 25-year-old this summer while Pep Guardiola’s side are said to be demanding €60m for the sale.
Now on Tuesday, UOL comes up with a new story, this time with Palmeiras’ point of view of this potential transfer.
It’s claimed that when selling the player to Manchester City, the Verdão kept 5% of a future sale.
They also have the right of 2.09% due to the solidarity mechanism, meaning that in case Jesus does move to Arsenal for €60m, the Brazilian side would receive around €4.2m.
UOL writes that with Gabriel Jesus focusing on finding a spot at the national team for the World Cup, he knows he needs to play more.
That’s why ‘he wants a transfer in June’.
Just like in the previous report, it’s said the player wishes the agreement to be ‘good for all sides’, with a ‘friendly exit’ from the club where he’s been at since January 2017.
So it seems up for Arsenal to pay that price, although it’s been said their Premier League counterparts could end up accepting a minimum of €50m, depending on how the negotiation goes.
