Gabriel Jesus joined Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal from Manchester City only in the summer of 2022, but the Brazil international striker is already being linked with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid.
According to Defensa Central, Arsenal star Jesus is among the strikers on the radar of Madrid president Florentino Perez.
Last season’s La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners Madrid are looking for a new striker due to persistent injury problems for France international star Karim Benzema.
And Jesus is reportedly among the strikers that Madrid like.
Could Real Madrid sign Gabriel Jesus from Arsenal?
In our view, Real Madrid are unlikely to be able to sign Gabriel Jesus from Arsenal in the January transfer window or even next summer.
- Arsenal and Chelsea will make offers to £118k-a-week ace, ‘one big hurdle’
- Arsenal could sign Champions League winner for free as Real Madrid talks stall
There is no way that the Gunners will sell Jesus in the middle of the season even if Madrid offer them more than the £45 million (The Daily Mail) the North London club paid Manchester City for him in the summer of 2022.
Absolutely no way.
After all, Arsenal are five points clear at the top of the Premier League table at the moment and could go on to win the title this season.
What about next summer, you say?
Well, if Arsenal win the league title or finish in the Premier League top four, do you really think that they will sell one of their best and most important players?
Now, of course, we know that Madrid are arguably the biggest club in the world and could end up winning the La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League again this season, so there is a chance that Jesus could be swayed if Los Blancos come calling.
However, we do not think that Arsenal will sell the 25-year-old.
