We are just two months away until one of the best prospects in football arrives at Manchester City, and his new manager is very excited.

Gabriel Jesus is finishing up his career with Palmeiras in Brazil and will move to the Citizens at the end of December as one of the most exciting strikers in the sport, and the 19-year-old is really making a name for himself before the move to England.

Since signing for City in August, Jesus did a fantastic job in Brazil's gold medal in the Olympics and became the starting striker for the senior national team, and no player in history has scored 4 goals before his 20th birthday in the South American World Cup Qualifiers a truly remarkable stat for a kid who has the pressure of wearing the same shirt as Ronaldo.

He's coming to City soon, and Pep Guardiola was asked on Tuesday about Gabriel Jesus, and the Catalan is clearly excited for the kid's arrival:

“The club decided to buy him and we are so happy. he guy is 19, 20 years old playing No. 9 for Brazil, it means a lot.

“We are so happy he is here. I am sure he is going to help us, not just this season but in the future of this club.

"From my point of view, I just want to help him, to build him. He will arrive with Fernandinho and Fernando and the other Brazilian players to help him to adjust and adapt as soon as possible.

“We are looking forward to him coming and being with us.”


You're not the only one looking forward to the Arrival of Jesus, Pep.
