Juventus monitoring future of Man City forward


Juventus are planning a summer move for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, claims The Sun.


City are looking to raise money through player sales to fund blockbuster moves for Harry Kane and Jack Grealish and Jesus could be one to leave as a result.


The Brazil international has never fully convinced as a potential long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero and his future now looks to be away from the Etihad.


City paid £27m to sign Jesus from Brazilian club Palmeiras in 2016 and the 24-year-old has scored 50 goals in 131 Premier League appearances for the club.


Max Allegri has returned as Juventus head coach this summer and is reportedly keen to bring Jesus to the club for next season.


However, Juventus already have Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata and Allegri's return will likely see Paulo Dybala sign a new contract.

Juventus only just made Morata's switch from Atletico Madrid permanent and they are unlikely to find any suitors for Ronaldo and his enormous wages this summer.


That leaves Jesus with the prospect of swapping a back-up role at City for the same status at Juventus, though they could change next year.


Of players to have started at least 50 Premier League matches since 2016/17, Jesus has the fifth best minutes-per-goal ratio in the division (one every 148.6 minutes).
