Manchester City ‘planning double-your-money offer for Gabriel Jesus’
Manchester City are reportedly hoping to tie Gabriel Jesus down to a double-your-money deal at the Etihad Stadium.
The 24-year-old has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter since arriving in 2017 and now has less than 18 months left to run on his deal with the Premier League champions.
Jesus’s contract situation and game time has supposedly attracted interest from elsewhere, with Inter Milan rumoured to be readying a bid for the Brazil international, and a return to Palmeiras has also been mooted.
However, journalist Jorge Nicola – via TEAMtalk – claims that Jesus is firmly part of Pep Guardiola’s plans, and there is no chance of the striker seeking a move away in the near future.
The report adds that a contract renewal in Manchester is the most likely option, with the Citizens prepared to double his salary in order to keep him on the books.
Jesus has scored 88 goals and set up 43 more in 223 appearances for Man City in all competitions but has started just 15 Premier League games this season.
