City have previously bought Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras for €32 million. It appears that the Brazilian side wants the same amount for Veron.

A pacy and reliable forward in front of net, the winger would be in line to go around for the same fees former wonder kids out of Brazil went for. Real Madrid alone signed three in recent years all worth over 30 million euros. in Rodrygo, Vinicius and Reinier.

They have been hit or miss, but now amid worldwide turmoil because of the pandemic in football would be time to strike on wonder kids. Especially in a volatile Brazilian transfer environment.
