Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus this summer.

Jesus impressed for City in their victory against Real Madrid in mid-week, netting the equaliser with a deft header from close range.
The same report states that Jesus’ heroics caught the eye of Juventus’ hierarchy once again – who have dispatched scouts to monitor the former Palmeiras ace’s progress at least twice over the last six months.
Juventus are said to admire Jesus’ technical abilities, as well as the fact that the striker could continue to improve in the future.

But the 22-year-old is set to snub interest from the Turin giants and remain at the Etihad
But regardless of interest from the Serie A title challengers, Jesus is thought to be determined to prove his loyalty to City and will also snub interest from Barcelona.
The striker has assured Pep Guardiola he would only leave if City were to sell him, regardless of the club’s future in Europe.
Jesus informed his agent that because City gambled on bringing him to the top flight, his desire is to remain at the Etihad – leaving several of the continent’s largest clubs braced for disappointment.
And with a contract set to expire in June 2023, Jesus appears set to continue his battle with club record scorer Sergio Aguero to become first-choice striker this campaign.
