City price Gabriel Jesus

Striker Gabriel Jesus is in the sights of Real Madrid. City are willing to part with it and have priced it.

Barring a big surprise, Manchester City and Gabriel Jesus will separate this summer. This agreement was reached between the parties in April, when the first definitive meetings took place to address the situation. Real Madrid, as journalist Antón Meana reports on Cadena SER, received a transfer offer and is very interested.

During discussions between the English club and the player’s representatives, an amicable agreement was reached: a departure during this transfer window for the one whose contract ends in 2023 is the best thing to do. City consider it better to sell him than lose him at zero cost in a year. With the arrivals of Haaland and Julián Álvarez, the Brazilian has to leave.

Several suitors for Gabriel Jesus have already taken a stand. There’s Arsenal, although there’s no formal offer, but Tottenham, who want to give Conte a guaranteed project, are also insistent. Chelsea, on the other hand, have shown interest, but are lagging behind due to their reduced room for maneuver due to their complicated institutional situation. Borussia Dortmund would also be in the running.

The Citizens management are ready to ‘facilitate’ the sale of Gabriel Jesus for 45-50 million euros. This is the amount fixed after a market study which resulted in an affordable price for a striker whose preferred position is 9, but who also knows how to play on the wings, never sparing his efforts in pressing and defensive withdrawals.

Real Madrid are studying the Brazilian international’s incorporation. As Marca reported, he is highly appreciated by the sporting management and by Ancelotti. To the amount of the transfer, we should add the salary of the former Palmeiras player, which without being exorbitant will not be the least: 7.5 million euros net per season.

Another aspect to consider is the quota of non-EU nationals, already covered in Madrid by Vinicius, Rodrygo and Militao. The Madrid club are still hoping to secure the former’s European passport but the delay has created uncertainty meaning Gabriel Jesus cannot be signed at the moment.
