Report: Potential Gabriel Jesus transfer fee has already been discussed with Manchester City

The Brazilian striker has reportedly already agreed a price with Manchester City should an Etihad transfer take place.

Spanish outlet Marca have reported that the deal Jesus has put in place for the Premier League champions will be between €45m and €50m (£38m and £43m).

Marca even reported that he was offered to Real Madrid and Los Blancos head coach Carlo Ancelotti is a fan of the 25-year-old. He even visited the Spanish capital before signing for Manchester City in January 2017.

Mikel Arteta is another admirer of the former Palmeiras striker, having worked with him when he was Pep Guardiola’s assistant before taking over at Arsenal. David Orstein recently claimed he was a player at the top of the Gunners’ transfer target list.

With Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez brought in so far, adding to an already incredibly gifted strike force, it looks like Jesus is the one they can afford to let go if the price is right.

The number ‘9’ often had to adapt in a game with Guardiola using him either side of the front 3, still managing 58 goals and 32 assists in 159 league games.

Add to this mix of recent interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund, it still looks likely that his time with the Citizens is over.
