Gabriel Jesus in line for City debutBrazilian striker could feature against Spurs following £27m move

Gabriel Jesus could make his long-awaited debut for Manchester City against Spurs on Saturday after formally completing his £27m move.

The Brazilian striker agreed a five year deal with the Blues in August, but remained in his homeland in order to finish the season with Palmeiras.

Jesus said: “I want to win titles and Manchester City is a club that is used to winning. City is a club that always competes for the title in the competitions it enters, so that was an important factor, and because of the manager, Pep Guardiola, and the squad.”

“I’m getting to know everything. I’m very impressed by the size of the club, with the planning, the structure, the training ground is very big, I really like it. I can’t wait to start playing. I was very pleased that the fans wanted to find out about me, were following me, so when I run out onto the pitch, I’ll be playing for them.”
