Inadvertently, Erling Haaland has put a great striker in orbit FC Barcelona ahead of the 2022 summer transfer market. With his arrival at the Manchester City, There are several attackers who will have to rethink their future since the Norwegian is going to be the undisputed starter in the English team and they will have few minutes. One of them is none other than gabriel jesus, which would once again be on President Joan Laporta’s agenda. In the absence of a year to end the contract at Etihad Stadium (June 2023), the Brazilian could move to Barcelona.
So far, there are no signs that the Sao Paulo-born will renew with the current Premier League champion. In fact, the 25-year-old footballer would be interested in a change of scenery given the little participation he has had on the pitch with Josep Guardiola this season.
The arrival of Julián Álvarez from River Plate in the middle of the year and the signing of Erling Haaland would leave Jesus with even fewer minutes than he has. For this reason, the international with Brazil would not look badly on signing for another great European football like Barcelona.
Gabriel Jesus’ interest in changing scenery would also go through reaching the 2022 Qatar World Cup with as many minutes as possible. The player from São Paulo wants to be the undisputed starter with Tite and regularity in a club is key to fulfilling the objective.
Although there is no mention of the money that Barcelona would pay Manchester City to have Gabriel Jesus in their ranks, the Transfermarkt portal indicates that the South American striker, who this season has scored 13 goals in 39 games, is valued at 50 million euros.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that the Brazilian attacker has sounded in the orbit of the Barça team. A couple of seasons ago, the then president Josep María Bartomeu wanted to take him to the Camp Nou. However, the rumors never ended up becoming reality.
