Branchini admits Inter Milan wanted Man City striker Gabriel Jesus

The agent of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus admits Inter Milan were keen when he was still in Brazil.

Gabriel made the move from Palmeiras to City in January 2017 for €32m, but there was very nearly a change of plan.

“Inter wanted to buy Gabriel Jesus when he was still at Palmeiras and there were negotiations," agent Giovanni Branchini said on stage at the Festival dello Sport this evening.

“Now he is at Manchester City and I don't think he is on the market. The Brazilian's wages are so high that I doubt he is within reach of the Italian clubs now."
