Manchester City have formalised the transfer of Brazil striker, Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras in time for him to feature against Tottenham this weekend.
The 19-year-old had agreed a move from his homeland to the Etihad Stadium back in the summer and had joined up with City earlier this month, yet his registration with his new club did not go through in time for him to make the squad for last weekend’s trip to Everton.
City confirmed on Thursday morning that Jesus could now be unveiled as Pep Guardiola’s sixth signing and that he is available to make his debut against Spurs on Saturday.
“I want to win titles and Manchester City is a club that is used to winning,” Jesus told the club’s official website.
“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, Guardiola, and the squad.”
