Manchester City ‘seem willing’ to sanction an exit for Gabriel Jesus to Juventus this summer, according to report from Italy.

Juventus needs a new striker and they have been linked with moves for several attackers ahead of the new campaign.

La Gazzetta Dello Sport via Football Italia says Allegri is targeting a new front man, but that would depend on the future of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese attacker has a year left on his current deal in Turin and there have been reports that he would leave the club.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday morning, Juventus are continuing to work to try and sign Gabriel Jesus this summer despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo’s future in Turin is anything but certain

The report claims that City ‘seem willing to grant a loan with an obligation to buy’ for the Brazilian, allowing the Serie A heavyweights to ‘spread the investment over several seasons’.

But the article admits the Serie A side understand the difficulties of completing such a deal, especially for a player like Jesus, 24, who has a bright future ahead of him, the report adds.

Talks between Juventus and Manchester City are reportedly ongoing and that the Bianconeri front office is rather determined to get a deal done.

The links with Jesus come amid speculation that City are looking to upgrade their attack ahead of next season by bringing in Jack Grealish and Harry Kane from Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

Jesus scored 14 times this campaign, although he isn’t guaranteed a regular place in the starting lineup for City, especially given Pep Guardiola’s tendency to often field a side without a recognised striker.’

Does Jesus have a long-term future at City?
