MANCHESTER CITY are poised to hand Gabriel Jesus a new deal worth £120,000-per-week to block mounting interest from Juventus.

Etihad bosses are confident they can also persuade the £100m-rated forward to extend his current contract - which still has three years left to run.

The latter could yet depend on whether the Citizens are successful in overturning the two-year Champions League ban imposed by UEFA for allegedly flouting Financial Fair Play rules.

The Manchester giants have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
