Juventus are still not 100% sure they’ll have Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad this season. Even though it’s likely the Portuguese star will stay at the club, the Italian press warns that there’s still a chance he could go somewhere else until the end of the summer.
So the Old Lady keep looking for potential replacements, and according to a story from Tuttosport, Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is one of them.
The Brazilian is said to be ‘on top of the list’ to replace Ronaldo, especially because he’s no longer considered to be ‘untouchable’ for Pep Guardiola, who wants Harry Kane signed this summer.
Tuttosport claims that the contacts with intermediaries for Gabriel Jesus’ transfer have been made for some time now, and another approach was made this week.
It’s claimed that Manchester City value Gabriel Jesus at between €50m and €60m. Juventus, as usually done by Serie A sides, would like to sign him on a long-term loan with a buying option.
Since previous claims from Italy had said that the Premier League side demanded over €60m for Jesus, perhaps things have been changing in the past few weeks.
