Allegri wants Jesus to replace Ronaldo at Juventus

Mon 07 June 2021 | 11:41

The Portuguese, who is entering the final year of his contract with the Turin giants, is priced around €29m by Juventus and the Bianconeri have been linked with a variety of marquee signings for his replacement. However, it seems their newly-appointed boss has a secret plan for the purpose.

The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner,

Cristiano Ronaldo

, joined Juventus for a €117.00m fee on Jul 10, 2018, and despite the criticism, he faces from media and fans due to Juventus's poor season, he has scored 29 goals in his 33 Serie A appearances.

However, with the Portuguese’s contract due to expire next summer, the negotiations over a contract renewal might get twisted due to Juventus

pandemic-affected finances

and Ronaldo’s age, 33. Hence, Juventus are in the market for a possible alternative to the Portuguese, who has been heavily linked with a return to Real Madrid. 

Massimo Allegri

has returned to Juventus dugout to replace under-achieved

Pirlo

, who ended the season in fourth-place, 13 points behind Serie A champions, Inter.

According to

La Gazzetta dello Sport

, if

Ronaldo

moves to

Paris Saint-Germain

this summer,

Icardi

becomes a natural solution for the Bianconeri, but their newly-appointed manager wants Manchester City’s Brazilian star,

Gabriel Jesus

, to replace the Portuguese.

Meanwhile, with the departure of

Sergio Aguero

and in search of a high-profile striker,

Manchester City

has put their eyes on

Tottenham

Hotspur’s captain,

Harry Kane

, who’s forcing for a summer departure from Spurs.

Hence, The Citizens must invest heavily to secure a deal with hard-to-deal-with

Daniel Levy

for the English forward’s signature, and they might be open to sacrifice

Gabriel Jesus

for financial matters.
