Pep Guardiola updates on Gabriel Jesus situation

In the upcoming summer, many big Premier League teams have plans to improve their attack with a quality central striker. As is the case with Manchester United, they are in need of a leading ‘Number 9’ to replace Edinson Cavani, who will almost certainly leave at the end of the season.

Similar to his neighbour, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Manchester City also have plans to bring in one more central striker. Of course, besides Erling Haaland, they still have many other notable targets, including Darwin Nunez – the star on the Benfica payroll.

 Nunez is ready to go to the Premier League.

It is worth mentioning that the Uruguayan striker was also in the sights of Man Utd. With 24 goals in the Champions League and Portuguese League since the beginning of the season, it is understandable that Nunez is interested in many big men. Of course, the 22-year-old star is fully aware of this.

As revealed by the Daily Star (sourced by Sky Sports), aiming to leave Benfica to move to a new club, Nunez has decided to change his agent. Notably, the top stops that Nunez is aspire to are also the two big Manchester cities.

It is known that the Uruguayan star has a contract release clause worth £ 67 million.
