Juventus Are Considering A Move For Manchester City Forward

Juventus have reportedly made Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus their top transfer target despite Cristiano Ronaldo being tipped to remain in Turin next season.

Juve are keen to add more firepower to their squad after finishing fourth in Serie A last season, 13 points behind champions Inter Milan.

According to Tuttosport, Jesus tops a list of targets that include Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi, Dusan Vlahovic and Andrea Belotti.

Juve chiefs reportedly convened over the weekend to confirm Jesus and their former striker Kean as their top targets.

Jesus, 24, has failed to establish himself in Man City's first team since joining the club in 2017; and found himself in and out of the side last season as City often opted to play without an orthodox striker.  

Kean, meanwhile, has struggled since signing for Everton from Juve in the summer of 2019, but he enjoyed a successful loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain last season, scoring 17 goals in 41 games for the French giants. 

Manchester United and PSG have been linked with moves for Ronaldo, and new Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is a known admirer of the 36-year-old forward. 

However, it seems the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is happy to remain in Turin for another season.  

Juve were rumoured to be interested in selling Ronaldo for around £25million and the Portugal legend even appeared to be open to idea. 

e said when asked about the speculation as cited by Sports Central: 'Whatever comes will be for the best.

However, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes is reportedly in Turin to discuss the possibility of a new one-year deal for his client.
