Report: Club interested in Man City man, would prefer ‘loan to buy’ if £96.7m player leaves

Juventus could be selling Cristiano Ronaldo this summer and already have their eye on potential replacements if he leaves.

Gazetta Dello Sport (h/t Sport Witness) says Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus is one of their targets, but the Old Lady are only willing to agree a ‘loan to buy’ deal due to their current financial situation.

Despite Sergio Aguero joining Barcelona, Jesus has an uncertain future at City as he doesn’t have Pep Guardiola’s trust. The 24-year-old scored 14 goals and made four assists in 42 appearances across the board last season, enduring multiple goal droughts throughout the campaign.
