REVEALED: Man City offered Gabriel Jesus to Bayern Munich

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus was offered to Bayern Munich last summer, it has been revealed.

BILD says City would be open to allowing the Brazilian forward to depart and tested the water to see of their was interest from Bayern.

The German champions made no secret that his team-mate Leroy Sane was their top target and it appears he remains their priority when he recovers from a long-term injury.

Gabriel started ahead of Sergio Aguero in Tuesday night's 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League - but it appears he was available for transfer in the summer.

Bayern's pursuit of Sane was ongoing for much of the window but the German's anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained in City's Community Shield triumph prematurely ended negotiations.
