PSG eye Mbappe, Neymar replacement

With Kylian Mbappe and Neymar being linked with moves to Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain are said to have earmarked one of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City stars as a replacement should either of the stars complete a move to Los Blancos.

Speculation regarding the futures of the world's two most expensive players continues to be on the rise, with the duo continuously the subject of reported moves to Zinedine Zidane's side.

As per a TeamTalk report, the Parisian giants are believed to have their eye on of Neymar's compatriot and City forward Gabriel Jesus as a result.

The Selecao forward has reportedly grown increasingly frustrated at being forced to sit on the bench, with Guardiola opting for Citizens record scorer Sergio Aguero as his preferred man up top for the majority of the 2018/19 campaign.

It is believed that due to his lack of game time with the Premier League champions, Jesus, 22, could be tempted to hand in a transfer request, with PSG reportedly lining up a move.

Despite Mbappe and Neymar's links to the Spanish giants, though, Real president Florentino Perez recently lifted the lid on the LaLiga outfit's reported pursuit of the superstar duo, stating that the club are not in the market to secure their signatures.

Since arriving at the Etihad Stadium from Palmeiras in a deal believed to be worth £27 million (R502 million) in January 2017, Jesus has made 100 appearances across all competitions for City, scoring 45 goals and registering 16 strikes.
