Manchester City don’t want to let Gabriel Jesus go, but they would consider a swap deal with Juventus for one particular player. Pep Guardiola would be open to a swap deal if it involved Paulo Dybala, according to Tuttosport.

Juventus’s interest in Jesus is longstanding, with the Italian side among those who missed out to City in the race to sign the Brazil international from Palmeiras in 2016.

Tuttosport now claim that City are unreceptive to the overtures of Juventus as Guardiola still ‘counting on’ Jesus. But should Juventus consider including Argentine star Dybala as part of a deal, that City’s position could be swayed.

This season so far, Jesus has made 39 appearances, has scored 18 goals and has created 9 assists.

Dybala, meanwhile, has made 34 appearances for Juventus, has scored 13 goals and has created 12 assists.
