Gabriel Jesus criticized for wanting to leave Manchester City for Arsenal


Gabriel Jesus played a key role in Manchester City’s success in the Premier League title but his future at the club is in question.

Crazy Ball – Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has come under fire from former England goalkeeper David James for wanting to leave the Premier League champions for Arsenal.

Some time ago, the Brazilian striker’s agent Marcelo Pettinati revealed that his party was in discussions with The Gunners for a potential transfer this summer, while several clubs are also interested in his services.

Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be interested in removing the 25-year-old striker from the Etihad Stadium, with rumors of this transfer starting to surface after Manchester City officially signed Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund for IDR 1 trillion.

Gabriel Jesus has actually played an important role for Pep Guardiola’s side this season having made 41 appearances in all competitions, scoring 13 goals and providing 12 assists. But he is worried about his chances of playing next season amid the arrival of the Norwegian bomber this summer.

But former England and Liverpool goalkeeper David James disagrees with the idea that the Brazil forward should leave Manchester City for Arsenal believing that the 25-year-old will still be a key player in the Premier League champions despite the arrival of Erling Haaland.

He told Genting Casino, “If you look at the performances of Manchester City’s players this season, Bernardo Silva and Rodri have played more than 30 Premier League games. But all the players in attack play about 25 games, so they don’t play every week.”

“Pep’s rotation has worked perfectly in the sense that they won the Premier League again. Haaland will not play in every game. Moreover, he also has a problem with his injury. Jesus would have had the same role had he stayed at Manchester City. They’re not going to buy Haaland and play him every game, so there’s still room for Jesus.”

“Why would he want to leave? You’ve been in the best team in England for the last five years, so would he risk a move somewhere else like Arsenal, who don’t even play in the Champions League?”
