Manchester United are ready to hijack Manchester City’s move for teen sensation Gabriel Jesus by beating their rivals’ current offer.
Interest in the 19-year-old has intensified this summer after it was revealed that Palmeiras would be willing to sell at the right price.
Manchester City have reportedly already made an offer of £26.8million after being impressed by the Brazilian’s tally of 19 goals in 30 games this season.
However, according to Globoesporte, Manchester United are ready to trump that by making a bid of £31.8million.
Scouts from the club have been watching Gabriel for the past year and they believe the striker is one for the future.
Spanish champions Barcelona have already failed with an approach and it now appears to be a straight fight between the Manchester clubs for the youngster’s signature.
