Massimiliano Allegri’s express wish to sign an unwanted Manchester City man has been given the green light by Pep Guardiola. Allegri returned to Juventus after a two-year absence and he is reported to have made City striker Gabriel Jesus his No 1 target.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Jesus is Allegri’s ‘first choice’, as he is ‘young versatile and likely to integrate himself nicely with the other forwards’. il Gazzetta claims Juve have been told that City are willing to sell the Brazilian for the right price.
They state Jesus ‘doesn’t fit in Guardiola’s plans’, and they’d have ‘no problems sacrificing him this summer. City will only allow Jesus to depart if they can secure the signing of Harry Kane this summer.
