UK Gabriel Jesus to Man United is unthinkable transfer that works for everyone last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- Arsenal want to sign Gabriel Jesus from Man City but it's a transfer that Man United should actually consider this summer.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! There are around four miles between Manchester United's Old Trafford and Manchester City's Etihad Stadium. Only five players - Terry Cooke, Peter Schmeichel, Andy Cole, Carlos Tevez and Owen Hargreaves - have dared to cross that divide in recent memory. Jadon Sancho played in City's academy but he never made an appearance for their first team after a dispute with Pep Guardiola and that prevents him from making the list. That didn't stop United from goading their rivals when signing Sancho last summer. "This is his home, this is where he belongs," was written across United's social media when Sancho signed for £72.9million from Borussia Dortmund. Sancho was actually born in Camberwell, south London, but those at the club felt like he was destined to play in red, hence their persistent chase of his signature. It was United's modern-day version of 'Welcome to Manchester, Carlos Tevez'. ALSO READ: Borussia Dortmund warned Manchester United about Jadon Sancho and they didn't listen. United should consider orchestrating another moment like that this summer. The club has spent £120m on right-wingers across the last two seasons [Sancho, Amad and Facundo Pellistri] and yet the position remains an obvious problem. The Manchester Evening News understands Erik ten Hag is interested in signing Antony, but perhaps United should be looking at another Brazilian that predominantly now plays on the right wing instead, as Gabriel Jesus seems to tick all of the boxes. The transfer is almost unthinkable, but it would work for everyone involved. Although Jesus was once viewed as the heir to Sergio Aguero at the Etihad, he wasn't prolific enough at centre-forward and his role recently evolved under Guardiola. "I feel comfortable out wide and can help my teammates and my team," Jesus said in October when asked about playing on the wing. "I can make runs in behind, control the ball, make passes, make crosses, help in defending. As I say, I feel comfortable there. "I didn't start to play as a winger just this season.

. I started to play in the first team of Palmeiras as a winger as well and I played sometimes when I arrived here as a winger as well. So I think I'm okay there. "I can make runs in behind, control the ball, make passes, make crosses, help defend so it's all good and suits my game." Jesus was being modest by stating that he is just 'okay' in that position. Some of his best performances for City have come off that side, but with Erling Haaland arriving, there will be fewer opportunities and he looks set to leave the club this summer.

Arsenal are interested in signing Jesus and a £50m fee for the player has been touted while Antony from Ajax, who is unproven in the Premier League, would command a fee of around £40m. That makes Jesus the more attractive proposition, surely. Jesus has contributed 95 goals and 46 assists in 236 appearances for City and there's a feeling that he's been perhaps underappreciated during his time at the Etihad. Jesus has often been outshone in a world-class team. United need a right-winger and Jesus would hit the ground running if he defected from blue to red - he wouldn't even have to move house. The obvious obstacle in the transfer is whether City would be prepared to sell Jesus to United this summer. However, City are seemingly happy to do business with Arsenal, so why wouldn't they deal with United? The Reds aren't an immediate danger to City and they're in the same underwhelming position as Arsenal in the Premier League. The move might be a non-starter, but a conversation between Ten Hag and John Murtough about the player is worth having. If the transfer was to happen, Jesus might suddenly be known as Judas in the blue regions of Manchester. Sign up to our United newsletter so you never miss an update from Old Trafford this season.
