Report: Milan eye potential €120m swap with Man City as Guardiola chooses Aguero heir

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are monitoring the situation surrounding Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, a report claims, but the Premier League side only want a swap.

According to Calciomercatoweb.it, Milan could look for a big signing this summer especially if they win the Scudetto, and they are keeping an eye on Jesus.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Mandzukic both out of contract in June as things stand, the 23 year-old Jesus would represent a long-term option for Stefano Pioli, as he is not featuring heavily in the plans on Pep Guardiola.

The English club have chosen Erling Haaland to be the heir to Sergio Aguero and the Brazilian, consequently, could look for a move elsewhere. Manchester City could ask for an exchange involving Ismael Bennacer – a player they like very much – and the Algerian is valued at €50million.

The former Palmeiras striker, on the other hand, has a valuation of around €70m and the Rossoneri might have to stump up some cash to cover the operation.

Jesus has scored 75 goals and has amassed 31 assists in 172 appearances across all competitions since joining City.

    This is a no no for me, nooooo! Milan shouldn’t go for Jesus…

    Don’t believe this rubbish. Maldini could be this stupid!

    Bennacer is a fine player but not needed at City at the cost of losing Gabriel Jesus. Jesus is of far more value to City. He is so much more than simply a goal poacher in a side where goals come from all over the park. ince arriving at City, now still only 23 years of age, and at 23 years of age, Jesus has 75 goals and 31 assists from 172 appearances. With 10,233 minutes on the pitch that amounts to one goal or assist every 96.5 minutes. Those sort of numbers for a young PL player are not far short of spectacular before you consider his all round contribution to team effort.

    Or — you know — Milan could just go after Haaland themselves. He is close enough to Zlatan in playing style that it would not necessitate a dramatic tactical shift.

    1. Juro says:

      Exactly. If we are spending 70 plus million on a player just go after Haaland lol. Doubt either happens and would not include Bennacer as he is essential to our mid and is only 22 years old. Jesus not sold on him and esp not at 70M

    2. Maha says:

      Yeah, that would be a gift that the fans would love and appreciate from Elliot. Haaland would have been the biggest thing for Milan since MVB.

  5. Prince Etok says:

    You expect Man City to give Milan one of her promising strikers in Gabriel Jesus and replace him with who? Why would they want to do that. Is Milan a better attraction than Manchester? Wake up mate

    1. Sangalo says:

      Wait! Are you ridiculing the impact of Bennacer in current resurgent of Milan? I can’t believe this is coming from a Milan fan.

  6. Mark says:

    It’s a nonono for me

  7. Suleiman Muhammad says:

    No we just need Haaland or or Lautaru

  8. Dimitri says:

    Giving up on Benaccer will be THE MOST IDIOTIC move on Milan’s part! If there’s one thing Maldini should do regarding Benaccer is to give him another contract (even though this one is quite long) and REMOVE THAT 50mil clause!
