Manchester City don’t want to lose any important player and they have started to work on solutions to shut down rumors linking their players with foreign clubs. The latest case of the list is Gabriel Jesus, who has drawn a lot of attention from some of the best teams in Europe, prompting Man City to take action.

Jesus is seen as a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero at the Etihad Stadium, making his case with the 50 goals he’s scored with the Citizens since he joined from Palmeiras two years ago.

The Brazilian forward isn’t a regular starter for City this campaign, but that doesn’t mean the Sky Blues consider him a disposable player. In fact, The Sun claims they'll look to hold onto the 22-year-old by slapping him with a £100m price tag.

This is claimed to be an attempt to prevent big clubs like Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain to try to make a move for the talented striker, although both sides are aware that trying to lure him away from Manchester will be a hard job to carry out since he signed a new five-year deal last season.

PSG have already identified loanee Mauro Icardi as Edinson Cavani’s replacement once the Uruguayan finishes his contract with the club. As it’s been the common practice for Les Parisiens in the last couple of years, they will sign new players, but it doesn’t look like a striker is what they need right now, even more, when you have Kylian Mbappe and Neymar as part of your team.

Bayern, on the other hand, are still keen to sign a Manchester City player, but not Gabriel Jesus. Instead, the Bavarians have placed all their attention on Leroy Sane, who could be making his way to Munich next year.

Having Robert Lewandowski in a great form and young players like Joshua Zirkzee and Jann-Fiete Arp ready to take over at the Allianz Arena, it’s unlikely to see Bayern breaking their transfer record for Jesus.
