Man City reject opening Juventus swap offer for Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City have rejected an offer from Juventus to take Douglas Costa off their hands.

La Repubblica says Juve offered the Brazil international in part exchange for City star Gabriel Jesus.

City boss Pep Guardiola worked with Douglas Costa at Bayern Munich - but Juve's proposal was turned down.

City management aren't convinced by Douglas Costa's ability to handle the physical demands of the Premier League.

The English giants are also adamant Gabriel isn't for sale ahead of the summer market.
