Premier League champions Manchester City are ‘looking at forwards‘ as part of their transfer plans for the summer due to the uncertain futures of Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus, alleges Telegraph journalist James Ducker.
Bayern Munich’s pursuit of Sane has been well documented, and there is a sense of resignation at Manchester City that the German winger is likely to leave for the Bundesliga in the summer. Ducker claims that should that transpire to be the case, then Real Sociedad’s forward Mikel Oyarzabal is one possible replacement.
Alongside Sane, there is also said to be ‘uncertainty‘ over how long Gabriel Jesus will remain in Manchester. The Brazilian striker has apparently failed to so far ‘convince figures at City that he can be the natural successor to Sergio Aguero‘. City are thus said to be considering their options as Jesus’s future is described as ‘fluid‘, but Ducker adds ‘he could easily remain with the club next season‘.
There is nothing especially original or insightful in James Ducker’s report, which does not provide any clarity or firm views and echoes what is already widely reported in the press.
