Manchester United Bids £15m On A Brazilian Star.

As the summer transfer window gets close, Manchester United have tabled a bid worth £15m for a Brazilian star named Gabriel Jesus. Reports confirm that United's rival, Manchester City are also keeping an eye on the youngster.

Jose Mourinho who took over reigns as United's manager last month has surprisingly changed his management style by showing interest in young players. His preference for big names was part of what allegedly forced him to part ways with Chelsea management. Although Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial seem to be at their peak, United could only manage 49 goals last season. Therefore, it is clear that 'The Special One' needs to improve on his options upfront. The team need to score more as Wayne Rooney is expected to get back into a deeper midfield role. Also, Gabriel Jesus will be a good competition for Marcus and Anthony who must wake up from their slumber to face the challenges ahead. Having already snapped up 22-year-old center-back Eric Bailly from Villarreal, the Express claim that Mourinho is now eyeing a move for highly-rated Palmeiras striker Gabriel Jesus this summer.

The 19-year-old has caught the eye of United scouts after scoring 20 goals in 60 appearances for the Brazilian outfit since breaking in to their first team in 2015 but it appears the teenager has a rather complex contract situation.

The newspaper says that Jesus has a two-tier clause in his deal that allows Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid the chance to sign the striker for £16.7m while any other club will have to pay £27.4m.

Despite the lower release clause figure being available to United, the Express claim they’ve tested Palmeiras’ resolve with an opening £15m bid – which falls just short of the reported £16.7m buyout clause.

It remains to be seen whether the Brazilian side will accept United’s offer but it looks as though the Red Devils could face competition as the newspaper says that Man City have submitted a £16.4m bid of their own.

City aren’t one of the clubs who are eligible to pay the lower release fee so Palmeiras are well within their rights to demand in excess of £17m for Jesus, which should put United in pole position to sign the young striker, a report said
