Gabriel Jesus Likely To Stay At Manchester City — Reports

Despite interest from Arsenal, Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio believes Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus "will stay" this summer.

Jesus has been linked with a move to the Gunners in recent weeks. In March, Fabrizio Romano stated that he would be available for roughly £50 million.

In 2016, Man City paid roughly £27 million to sign Jesus from Palmeiras. In 232 appearances for the English team, he has 95 goals and 46 assists.

In recent weeks, Jesus has been in outstanding form. Last month, he scored four goals against Watford, and at the Etihad, he scored against Real Madrid.

"I don't think Guardiola will let [Gabriel Jesus] leave, even if they sign Haaland, after seeing him play against Real Madrid." "They'll do it because they're so close," Di Marzio told wettfreunde.

"They still require a striker." A striker who isn't like the rest. Haaland is a unique place. [Gabriel Jesus] will stay because a player like him is hard to come by. Manchester City does not need to sell a player to fund the purchase of another. They have the option to purchase as many players as they like.

"In the end, everything will depend on Gabriel Jesus and whether he is willing to play less with Haaland on the way. It all hinges on his mindset, knowing that another fantastic striker like Haaland is on the way."

Haaland may not "arrive and play immediately" next season, according to Di Marzio:

"Gabriel Jesus stayed when Jack Grealish arrived for £100 million last year, and now he's playing while Grealish is on the bench. So no one knows if Haaland will arrive and play right away, or if he will be one of Guardiola's "untouchable" strikers.

"With [Guardiola], you never know." If you don't follow Guardiola's tactical instructions, you'll be left on the bench. For the first time, he knows what Guardiola is asking him to do."
