Manchester City may look to sell both Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus in the summer, according to The Athletic. The Frenchman, in particular, has come in for fierce criticism for his performances this season.
He was at fault for Wolves’ second goal last night, after being pushed off the ball by Adama Traore before the Spaniard passed to Raul Jimenez for the equaliser in the 3-2 defeat.
The sale of Jesus would be a big surprise, though. The Brazilian has been touted as Sergio Aguero’s long term successor in the number nine role. He has scored 11 goals in 24 appearances this season but he did go through a lengthy goal drought.
It may be the case that manager Pep Guardiola feels that the money from his sale could be better spent on other areas of the squad. The Athletic say that the Citizens want to bring in up to five players next summer.
They have slipped 13 points behind Liverpool at the top of the table, and it is believed a large overhaul of the playing squad is needed to get the team back challenging for the title.
