According to reports, Juventus are monitoring a move for Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus.
Gabriel Jesus’ man by stint
Gabriel Jesus came to Manchester City back in the summer of 2016.
Despite the Brazilian having had zero European experience to his name, Man City are believed to have paid an initial £ 27 million for his services.
After five seasons in England, Jesus has scored 195 appearances across all competitions for the Manchester Power Center, scoring 82 and assisting 34.
42 of these excursions came during the 2020/21 campaign, suggesting that the Brazilian was a key figure for Man City last season.
However, Jesus was actually used less and less by Pep Guardiola in the big games.
This resulted in Guardiola instead favoring a false-nine system that usually had Phil Foden, Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez at the top.
This system was largely used by Pep through Champions League knockout rounds and in the major PL games.
In return, instead, Jesus would generally only start games against smaller opponents, or when Man City had already packed their latest league title.
Juventus eye Jesus
Now, with the summer window open, Jesus is connected with a switch to Serie A.
That Sun reports that Juventus have made Jesus their top priority transfer.
Jesus will reportedly remain a priority, although Cristiano Ronaldo remains in Italy for yet another campaign, with the tip said to lead a wish list that also includes Everton’s Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi and Andrea Belotti.
No potential fee for Jesus is mentioned in the report, or if Man City would really be open to selling him.
But given that he was not part of Pep’s best XI last season, City might consider a sale for the right fee?
