Manchester City starlet hopes teammate stays at club
Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus does not want the club to sell Sergio Aguero this summer, despite facing competition from the Argentine at the Etihad Stadium, per Sky.
There have been reports that City boss Pep Guardiola will cash in on Aguero after watching Jesus’ impact since arriving from Palmeiras in a £27million deal in January.
Despite a foot injury halting his progress this term, the Brazilian 20-year-old has had a positive impact on an otherwise tough season at City.
Guardiola and Aguero have reportedly clashed over the striker’s lack of ability to follow instructions, fuelling speculation of a summer departure. But his fellow attacker hopes he stays at the club.
Jesus told The Sun: “Sergio is a very important player and essential to the club. Since the first time he arrived until now, he’s been a real star – the starting forward of the team.
“He has helped this club a lot and has had an amazing career here, so all the fans and all of us want him to stay at Manchester City. Since I met him I realised he is a really nice guy. We are all aware about his skills as a player.
“I’m very happy to see he is a good person, humble, charismatic – that’s very important for me as well. He became an idol because of his success here at Manchester City – he totally deserves it.”
