Gabriel Jesus Realising a ‘Dream’ at Manchester City
Gabriel Jesus says he is realising a lifelong dream by playing for Manchester City in the Premier League. It has been a whirlwind 18 months for the 19 year old, who has risen to stardom in club and international football.
The Brazilian says he first became aware of Manchester City when they signed Robinho from Real Madrid in 2009 and that he has followed their progress ever since. In an interview with Fox Sports, Jesus said, “I used to play football, watch games, and I dreamed a lot about being a professional, playing for a big club.
“I fulfilled my dream when playing for Palmeiras. More than fulfilling a dream, I played for the national team. Now, I fulfilled another dream, which is to play for a great club in Europe, which is Manchester City. I started following them after a certain age. I followed Robinho here.”
It is rumoured that Manchester City are in negotiations to double the teenager’s current salary and tie him down to the club that he only joined in January.
