Report: Manchester City tell Juventus to pay £43m if they want Gabriel Jesus
Manchester City have reportedly told Juventus it will take around £43m for them to even consider selling their striker, Gabriel Jesus, this summer.
Juventus are said to be tracking the City star as they look to add some fresh faces in the transfer window. The Italians have got wind of City’s situation, where reports have suggested Pep Guardiola is open to selling a few big name stars to fund other moves.
However, if Juve do want Jesus, then he’ll cost big bucks. Calciomercato claim that City have told the Turin giants it will be £43m, no less.
That would represent a club-record sale for City. Their previous best coming in the form of the £40.5m they received for Leroy Sane from Bayern Munich.
Brazilian forward Jesus has had an inconsistent time of things while at The Etihad. Dubbed as the success to Aguero at one point, he struggled to get in last term at times even with Aguero out. Guardiola opting for, at times, a false nine on the form of De Bruyne or Mahrez.
City right to demand big fees
Being honest, City are right to demand the big bucks when it comes to selling players. Other clubs always ask for more when City come knocking, so it only seems right it works both ways.
Further, Jesus is a good player. He’s only 24, and while he’s been no Aguero, his record is still good overall.
Juventus, then, simply need to pay up here if they’re serious.
