Manchester City’s summer transfer activity is far from over and Pep Guardiola is still working on reshaping his squad for the 2016/17 season.
Manchester City have been handed a huge boost in their bid to sign brilliant Brazilian prospect Gabriel Jesus, with the player said to prefer a move to the Blues over rivals Manchester United .
Pep Guardiola wants to sign the player who some have dubbed the new Neymar, but faces competition from a host of clubs, including United, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
But reports in Brazil have claimed that the teenager would prefer to join City if he leaves boyhood club Palmeiras this summer as he wants to team up with Guardiola.
Defender Eliaquim Mangala could be on his way out of the Etihad, however, with Valencia keen to sign him.
The anticipated signing of Everton star John Stones would push him further down the pecking order and he has struggled to live up to the demands of his huge price tag since joining City from Porto in August 2014.
The Echo report City have offered to include Wilfried Bony as part of a deal for Stones but Everton have ‘rejected the offer out of hand’.
Unsurprisingly, Danny Rose is set to receive a new Tottenham contract just weeks after he was linked with City and Chelsea. The England full-back is expected to agree terms before the start of the season.
