After a glorious title-winning end to his time at Palmeiras, Gabriel Jesus is on his way to England where he will have a medical exam for Manchester City.

The 19-year-old was signed by the Sky Blues on a pre-contract last summer, costing them a sizable £27 million fee.

Jesus just finished what was an incredible year for him, playing in a ludicrous amount of fixtures for club and country and is now ready to bring his services to Manchester City.

Gabriel will be given a well deserved break for the month of December. Once 2017 comes, he will be registered into the squad.

The Brazilian could be crucial in Pep Guardiola’s push for the Premier League title. He is one of the world’s best young talents and is undoubtedly the greatest youth product coming out of the Brasileirão since Neymar. Could Gabriel develop into one of the greatest players Man City has ever seen? Under Guardiola, the possibilities of this happening are quite large.

The striker posted a photo on Instagram depicting him with his bags packed, ready for the new challenges ahead.
