Gabriel Jesus on the move?
The young Brazilian arrived at Manchester City in 2017 for 35 million euros from Palmeiras. Since his arrival, he has won everything with Manchester except the Champions League. Arrived as a hopeful, he has still not managed to become an indisputable starter in the eyes of Pep Guardiola. Long barred by Sergio Agüero, the Brazilian was not installed as a starter at his departure. Pep Guardiola prefers to put a false number 9 rather than install him at the top of the attack. In addition, the Cityzens wanted to recruit Harry Kane last summer. The quest for the number 9 seems to end for City with the purchase of Julian Alvarez for 20 million euros from River Plate.
A real lack of confidence for Gabriel Jesus, who could be seduced by the idea of becoming an indisputable starter at Arsenal. Mikel Arteta wants to take advantage of the lack of consideration that the Brazilian international suffers to convince him to join the capital. The two men know each other well, as they worked together in Manchester when Arteta was Guardiola’s assistant.
