Ausilio: "Our offer for Gabriel Jesus was better than Manchester City but the player wanted to play for Guardiola. Inter? I am very fortunate"
Speaking to Sky Sport, Piero Ausilio reveals the behind the scene facts on the negotiation for Gabriel Jesus, the current Manchester City striker.
“We negotiated for him for a month, our offer was even higher than that of Manchester City. Palmeiras preferred to sell him to us. Then the player, through his agents, told us that he wanted to play for Pep Guardiola.
“At Inter, I am very fortunate because I could work with everybody. I started with Mazzola then Terraneo, Branca, Oriali and then I became a sport director. I learned something from all of them and I also think I gave them a helping hand in return.”
