YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS!!! JESUS IS HERE! JESUS IS HERE! JESUS IS HERE!!! The Brazilian forward is finally ready to make his Manchester City debut. That's according to a report from The Guardian:

Manchester City are poised to announce Gabriel Jesus is now eligible to play for Pep Guardiola’s side, with the club hopeful of receiving confirmation on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning.

The Football Association is nearing completion of its due diligence process regarding the Brazilian and it now seems likely he will be available for Saturday’s visit of Tottenham Hotspur to the Etihad Stadium.

Gabriel Jesus arrived in Manchester two weeks ago and has been training with the City squad since then. The 19-year-old was signed in the summer for £27 million but stayed until Decemeber in Brazil to win the Brazilian national championship with Palmeiras, his childhood club.

Jesus is the starting striker for the Brazilian national team and is regarded as one of the most promising players in world football. There's a big chance he'll be on the bench, and he might be the wildcard Pep Guardiola will use to try and beat Spurs this weekend.
