Manchester City are now ready to monetize striker Gabriel Jesus – about a year since he was touted as a makeweight for Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.

Cast your mind back to 2021 and Kane’s future was one of the most popular topics of conversation.

Tottenham had once again missed out on Champions League football and some felt Kane would want to leave.

Kane did little to dispel that idea on the golf course with Gary Neville, but the transfer window came and went with no deal.

Manchester City were the main contenders for Kane but fell short of the fee Tottenham wanted.

However, the Daily Star reported on it that Tottenham would be willing to sell if the offer was in cash plus City striker Jesus in exchange.

The Sun also reported that Jesus could be Kane’s replacement at Tottenham. That Added daily mail that Tottenham’s recruiting staff selected Jesus as their first-class makeweight.

It seems Jesus is well regarded at Tottenham but no deal materialized last summer that Kane stayed with.

Jesus is now approaching the 2022 summer window and appears to be approaching the exit door of the city.

lance in Brazil report that City have decided to greenlight a deal for Jesus to leave this summer.

Pep Guardiola was previously reluctant to let Jesus go but Lance claims the Brazilian will now make the move this summer.

Guardiola may have wanted to keep Jesus because he was a natural striker – something City failed to add last summer.

With Erling Haaland seemingly willing to swap Borussia Dortmund for City, it seems Jesus is the underdog.

Jesus, 25, has made just 16 league appearances and just one in the Champions League this season.

Seven goals and eight assists in all competitions isn’t a bad record for Jesus, but he just doesn’t seem to have the clinical advantage he showed when he first joined City in 2017.

With Jesus seemingly available, would Tottenham be interested again?

It’s hard to imagine Jesus wanting to join Tottenham as a replacement for Kane, who is certainly not going now.

The ship may have sailed for Jesus, who joined Tottenham, but Spurs fans would much, much prefer Kane anyway.
