Former Inter president Massimo Moratti has revealed Gabriel Jesus has made him “fall in love with football again”, and has urged the Serie A giants to sign the Brazilian.
Jesus has impressed since joining Manchester City from Palmeiras, scoring three times in five games before falling victim to injury.
Moratti has been enthralled with what he has seen from the 19-year-old so far, and thinks Jesus could become a superstar like Lionel Messi.
The billionaire presided over Inter from 1995 to 2013, but still has a strong interest in the club, and wants them to pursue the Brazil international.
“He made me fall in love with football again,” Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.
“Every now and again you need this new kind of player to reignite your passion and Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City is, for me, a player you have got to pursue.
