Real Madrid has been left without Kylian Mbappe, and despite the fact that the 'Royal Club' has won European and Spanish titles this season, the Santiago Bernabeu is still considering bringing in some big attacking reinforcements.
Raheem Sterling, Romelu Lukaku, and Rafael Leao have been mentioned in the Spanish media in recent days, and today Marca reports that Gabriel Jesus is one of the favorites to come to Madrid. According to Cadena Ser, he is being considered after his people got in touch with Real Madrid.
The Brazilian striker is in the background in Manchester City on the eve of next season. ‘Citizens’ have brought in Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, so the 25-year-old Jesus will have a lot of competition for a place in attack.
Manchester City's Brazilian striker is on the market, as Pep Guardiola considers him expendable. Real hopes that Jesus could be available in the summer transfer window, and as an additional reason for bringing him, Marca points out that Carlo Ancelotti is very interested in him and wanted to bring him to Bayern while he was coaching the Bavarian club.
But Jesus then went to Manchester City who paid him 32 million euros to Palmeiras, and now Real should surely pay more for his services. Transfermarkt estimates it at 50 million euros, below that the price will certainly not go ...
Gabriel Jesus could be a prudent transfer
Gabriel Jesus has one year left on his contract, so the outlay wouldn't be significant and the player is already proven. He could come to the club to add to the squad, knowing that Karim Benzema is in front of him.
The main obstacle for his arrival at Real Madrid is that, as Marca has reported, one of the options being considered by the club is to sign a short-term option, pending what may happen with Haaland and the release clause he has in two seasons.
Real Madrid is also considering another possibility: the option of a homegrown player. That would be Juanmi Latasa, whose name is on the table in the Valdebebas offices to reinforce the forward line.
