Manchester City’s Brazilian forward, 23-year-old Gabriel Jesus, was brought to the club as a potential replacement for the ageing Sergio Aguero. At 32 years of age, the Argentinia-born striker is already in the late autumn of his career. Although he is still scoring goals, time and tide wait for no man, especially given the fact that he has just undergone surgery on his injured knee.
The Citizens are due to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 match, where they hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg played in Madrid. Despite his impressive display against Brighton, Jesus has not been firing on all cylinders of late, and City need Aguero fit again to lead the charge when the match takes place on the 7th or 8th of August. It is, however, highly unlikely that he will be.
If the Sky Blues are to progress further in the competition, Pep Guardiola needs to motivate Jesus so that he can step up and meet the club’s and the fans’ expectations of him. Ex-City player Joleon Lescott said in an interview back in December that he felt a lot of Jesus’s problems were down to his young age and not coping well with the pressure under which he feels he is being put.
Following rumours of the Brazilian’s unhappiness, Inter Milan are said to be interested in signing Jesus as a possible replacement for Lautaro Martinez who has been linked with a potential move to Spanish giants Barcelona. Juventus also are said to be showing an interest in the 23-year-old to take over from the aging Gonzalo Higuain.
In the meantime, Pep Guardiola has a problem on his hands. Aguero is in the last year of his contract with Manchester City, and given his recent injury and his advancing years and what that means in terms of recovery, can he afford to let Jesus go? He may not yet have found his best form, but he has made 45 appearances in which he has scored 18 goals and made 11 assists.
Given the uncertainty with Aguero, he would not want to lose Jesus, and accordingly, City has put a £70-million price tag on his head. But to turn the corner with his young Brazilian star, Guardiola has got to get the forward motivated, Ne needs to help him to get his mojo back. A good showing against Real Madrid in the upcoming Champions League fixture would make all the difference.
With the Premier League title now done and dusted, the only ting City can hope for is to win the Champions League. It would bring back some pride for both the club and the players. Youngsters like Jesus, crave European football, worldwide recognition, and of course, trophies.
There can be no doubt that the game against Real is the most crucial fixture on City’s radar. Not only in terms of their pride now, but for next season’s prospects too. It could also be the making and breaking of Gabriel Jesus’s future in a Sky Blue shirt.
Jesus has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season so far. Not bad for a second choice No 9. He also scored against Real Madrid in the first leg. So maybe he’s already proved himself.

Could you please send my message to the England team. I am over flowing with pride on the achievements of the whole team. Most of them are not old enough to know but women wanted to be part of men’s football without been labelled lesbenens. I have been told stories of how these women are like teenagers over this tournament. You every one of you have achieved this. The next generation will follow though from this both male and female XXX
I am sorry your team didn’t win your tournament but they give good football. Hope your career is a bit more chilled from now on. Football has pulled so many people together and it’s been a delight to witness this. Love Luck and Happiness always XXX
Hello every had your guts ripped out I have. I didn’t funk up you did so did Gareth Southgate. Try to get by on talent alone see how far it gets you and the rest of the teams Lady Luck.
You want to know why I was upset to hear of your date well how’s this for a story it’s been over 20 years since I dated that is what they did to me back here they sociologicay castrated me. I very stupidly put my trust and hope in you and football. Big joke or what.
Sorry to evolve you but I am desperate. Back here I was drugged stripped of my clothes and I suspect I was sodimized. I made the original complaint to the police in 2008.It was an Australian rugby player and I was led to believe he had returned to Australia so I couldn’t follow though with the complaint. I have since been informed he could be back in England. In the years to follow people have tried to turn my mind inside out.
When I was 5 it is possible I was sodimized and repressed the memories till it happened again when I was older. What happened when I was older actually made me sycophantic and I suffered with long term depression also. The person I am accusing is a man who’s last name is Shiberus his children are Lorraine. Julian and Shane. I am sorry to evolve them as they were very special to me. But the memories have haunted me and I need to sort this. Also when I was 10 a neighbours older son was going to try to force me into the act of sexual intercouse I kicked him in the Penis and got away from him. I was actually playing hide and seek with his siblings at the time. His name is Alan Jones formally of 32nd Avenue North Hull Estate. The actions of all 3 of these men have left me with server mental health problems also emotional problems too I now find it near impossible to form a loving relationship and have been left feeling damaged and unwanted. I hope speaking out gives others the confidence to do so too. I have been made aware that taking these issues to court will be difficult not impossible though. They need to be made aware that their actions have had a very detrimental affect. I hope that when I kicked up a fuss at the time of each incident that they never when onto abuse anybody else or cause harm or pain in any way. Always hopefully x
While I have the opportunity I would also like to dispell the rumours regarding me been aurtisic I have never been assessed for aurtisium at school at college or in my working life. These rumours came about from a very jealous girl now woman from infant school when I had to be in her class for mathematics because back then I was really good at she was two years older while the other pupils found it cool she didn’t. Her name was back then Jackie Adamson she later emergrated to Australia but while back in England visiting family much later in years she found pleasure in causing trouble for me both at work and with my family. When I was five/six years of age my parents where going through a separation later divorce. Their relationship had been both violent and volatile. My best friend died of a hole in the heart. I was abused. Also my friends older sister was murdered. If I didn’t give eye contact it was because I was extremely sad I was also very naughty and played up a lot but tell me how as a very young child was I supposed to cope. While my faith in people has come into question over the years my faith in God can never be in question and will never diminish my faith in God has always been strong from been extremely young age. One day people will find its God that rules the world and not King’s or Queens or Governments until then I will get by on faith hope and cold bloody mindness.x
Hello not to interfere but just to let you know I know you are going through a very stressful time at the moment. Hold on in there have faith. Maybe one day we will meet hope so. Would really look forward to seeing you and maybe you can pack my shopping bag for me. If I haven’t got it wrong you are a good packer. X
Congratulations on your teams win at the Olympics hope you go all the way. I had a really good time too I was celebrating my granddaughters eighteenth i went for a meal with family. By the way I know you all get by on spectacular talent I was just kicking off sorry. XXX
Don’t think it went unnoticed that your team scored a hat trick. Looks like I owe you one a deal is a deal XXX
Hope you are enjoying the Olympics as much as you are able. Best wishes and good luck for your match on Wednesday morning. XXX
Congratulations on your teams win. XXX
Best wishes and good luck with your next match. Please pass on my congratulations to all the competitors in the British teams who have done so well I am proud of them and of you and your team. Also of all competitors for been there and taking part especially of those who stepped aside for health reasons as this must have been the most difficult decision to make.XXX
Good morning last night I was planning to have a good rant as I felt sad and down and was frightened I was going backwards in my mental health problems. This morning I got up early and watched the BMX races we achieved gold in women’s and silver in men’s this really lifted my mood. They were talking about what it takes for athletes to be in the Olympics. I just want to say to the people who think they have taken me for a ride you have lost out as I have sacked you off I can always clean my own windows. I can find another hairdresser and I can find another dentist. To the dentist who was particularly cruel when she told me to bit down hard when the x-ray was in my mouth without a gard or frame round it so the x-ray would have cut my gums both top and bottom really. Would you thank for me the people who have been real and supportive towards me during my recovery from mental health issues especially Football. QVC shopping channel also Create and craft channel for helping to lift my spirit. There were times the people on the shopping channels just made me giggle when I really needed to laugh. By the way da-da to you too. I challenge you to score another hat trick you know what that means if you do hum. Good luck. XXX
Congratulations good luck for your next match. I am keeping my fingers crossed for your team for the final too. XXX
Congratulations on getting to the final. Sorry I can’t say too much as I think my granddaughter has covid and I am worried for her. Her dad is going to try to get her a test when he gets back from work later. Be in touch later this week. Good luck for the final X
Hello my granddaughter Mae has got covid but is recovering slowly she has not got any worse which is a blessing. We were planning to go on a few day trips as I am off work these two weeks but I said we can go next time I have time off. It is more important she gets better and gets her strength back. I hope you are playing tomorrow and I hope they televise it on the BBC so I can watch it. Good luck for you and your team hope you knock it out the park. XXX
Congratulations congratulations congratulations I happened to have watched most of the match. My Mae is a lot better now my son could have covid. The pleasure of having children you worry constantly. The match was a real delight to watch I felt sorry for the players from both teams when it went into extra time they were all tired. Excellent match though. XXX
Hello. Good luck for your next match. Assisted in three goals does that mean I owe you one?. I will have to think long and hard about that one. I think I said you had to score three goals. Unless that means your cheating owning you one when you didn’t actually score. Maybe it just deserves a X. Good night I leave you to think on that.
I have just noticed on the 25th September you play Chelsea. Can I wish you the best for that match and not luck as I usually do as I will be really torn. You see my loyalty belongs to Chelsea as I have been an armchair supporter since I was Seventeen although I have seen them once at a match. I feel I have a vested interest in Manchester City. Also Liverpool has my heart as the music that came out of Liverpool in the 60s helped me though a very difficult childhood. Best wishes XXX PS hope you are OK and feeling much better these days. X
Congratulations congratulations congratulations Xxx Sorry it’s short but on my way to work x
Scored a goal score a X
Hello another day. Hope you are OK. I am more than a little drained at this moment in time. Well here goes can you give this information to the Metropolitan Police in London on my behalf. Many years ago I found that two of the names associated with the Stephen Lawrence case could possibly have connections back here both with business and sports. Also a man I was on a date with was the double of Stephen he took my name telephone number and address but I never saw him again. The next thing Stephen had been murdered and I couldn’t believe the likeness to the man I was with. There was a point with all that was happening to me that it could have been mistaken identity. The most amazing thing was later I had a vision and Stephen told me they did it and I told a solicitor back here who I had to see at the time over a private matter. This was after the first time they were arrested so I assumed the police had the correct men. Much later Stephen told me my mum has to do this and take it forward for me. Which she did I know Stephen is proud of his family for what they have achieved. I have always believed that there was a connection with here and London. The man I was with told me he was 26 and staying at Beverley Baracks. The Australian rugby player I accused could also have a connection nothing shocks me any more. I also know for the police to take the case forward against him the need evidence well I have a piece of evidence regarding the aligastion of serspected rape but I don’t want to give it to police back here. I don’t want it to go missing that’s because the police may be OK but there are people connected with the police that are to connected with rugby too and the evidence may disappear. Also Christopher Allder talked to me a few days before he died in police custody I got the impression he knew about my ordeal but couldn’t talk to much. What I was surprised to find out many years later was there was no video footage of him any were. You see the council at the time bragged that the crime rate had gone down in the city centre due to the ctv cameras around the city centre. You see it was in the city centre where we saw each other. Hope this information is of help both to Stephen Lawrence family also Christopher Allder family. Well I bet you didn’t expect all that did you. Luck and best wishes for your next game XXX
Hello hope you are not worrying too much about your country ‘s commitments I think everything will work out. Just having a glass of wine and knitting a baby blanket it’ s the only think that keeps my calm. I will have to find a good course to give all the baby blankets too that I have knitted over the years. Any suggestions?. Well good night for now sweet dreams. Luck and best wishes XXX
You move on the pitch back and forward side to side. Kick the ball high and low. With your team mates you share the glory. Supporters shout and screaming hopeful for the dream. A trophy at the end of the season everything has reason. Sunshine to show the way each and every day. But if it rains so what it cools the pains. The muscles grow tighter but you are such a fighter. Though the pain to win a goal all done with soul. If you loose don’t get the blues. Pick yourselfs up drive your spirits to the top . Don’t let the doubters say never play hard and you will succeed. Show how you all gel with faith hope and the rest will tell. Hold the trophy high sing a song with the lads. In the papers for all to see happy and smiling with glee. Brazil or maybe Britain who’s to know only God. LOVE LUCK and all my wishes XXX
Hello Hello Hello XXX
Hello again hope you are well and fit and enjoying your world cup as much as possible. I have been feeling a little distant just recently. Tonight I watched a program about a murder of a young woman many years ago which was witnessed by her very young son. His opinion of the media the police and the psychological problems he enjoed grieved me. He seems such a well adjusted man. The decisions his dad made back then made me understand more of why some of my problems when I was younger had not been addressed. Sometimes digging up the past pain is not always beneficial. When I look back even as a small child I did kick up a fuss so maybe this stopped them coursing harm to anybody else. It was just before I had the nervous brakedown both these people appeared in my life almost as if they were torturing my mind. There were three things that coursed me to have sycophantic symptoms. One been abused which I suspected I had been raped two been bullyed and three been sexually cornered as I was suspicious some women wanted my to go down the gay line. All I have ever wanted is to find a man a special person to love care and respect me. Which I know the right man I can give these qualities too in return. We have a saying what is too painful to remember we choose to forget. Until my memory resurfaced because people were poking and proding I was fine. I was actually at my fitested and healthested time of my life. The program tonight proved to me that sometimes in life you need to deal with things privately and carefully and calmly in your own time and space. Alex’s dad did the right thing in taking him out of the country all those years ago. I wish them all my love luck and wishes for the future and hope they find peace and happiness one day. One day maybe I will find peace and happiness too. Hope your next games go ahead and there is not too much disruption best of luck as always. XXX
Congratulations on your teams win in Brazil. I am sorry I have only just found out that due to covid restrictions you where not allowed to go. Best of luck for the next game both here and Brazil. Hope you are OK and fit. People back here are now beginning to understand how my life has been for a number of years and it wasn’t that great. One bonus is that some people who I thought didn’t like me have actually come round the fact is they just didn’t get me but now they do. XXX
Hello congratulations for your team win yesterday. Keep fit and healthy. Your attempt on goal was really good but don’t see it that you didn’t win the goal but the goaly was just doing his job and got there first better luck next time. Knowing you I know there will be many many many attempts to come in the future. Yesterday I was sad and happy both at the same time as Mae has gone to university now. Later in the evening I was crying and watching create and craft the two people on the programme got a little or maybe a lot naughty and I ended up laughing my head off. That actually changed my mood and I stopped crying because I knew I was going to miss Mae and crying wasn’t going to help. I later had a glass of wine and watched Match of the day. When I earlier said I think some people actually get me now I do know I can’t let my guard down any more because of what happened to me many years ago. I don’t think I will ever totally relax not ever. Well here’s to life and trying to live it the best way I can at the moment. Hoping for the future too. Love Luck and best wishes XXX
Hello can’t sleep tonight bad memories playing up with my mind. Watching MTV awards interesting. Also knitting one of my baby blankets.

Congratulations again brilliant game. I am going to see Mae tomorrow for the weekend which I am really looking forward to. I need to get something off my chest first of all once and for all so I can go and see her with a clear mind. When I was drugged stripped and serspect sodimized it was planned executed and condorded which made me sick to the stomach it has eaten away at me for years. I have lived here all my life and I feel unprotected and undervalued it has also left me feeling disgusted and repulsed by so many people. There is also another issue of a cure or remedy for cancer if I had the answer it would be a global cure as cancer is a global illness. It would not belong to the city I live in that is such an arrogant assumption. God bless you for you being you. X
Congratulations on your baby news. Hope you don’t have too many sleepless nights. Or maybe I do. Ha ha ha. Just returned from seeing Mae for the last two days. Love love love the Trafford centre did I say I love the Trafford centre. Good luck with the next big game. Love Luck and lots of kisses XXX
Hello good morning. Something really magical happen yesterday. While in Argos in Manchester my son was looking at information for phones I was stood to a side and I was holding my hands behind my back. This is not a normal stance for me then I realised this was a normal stance for my granddad who we called pop I then thought my pop must have been around me all these months while times had been difficult. I took great comfort in that thought. He was a very special person to me when he was alive. Hope you have someone special to look over you too. XXX
Hello best wishes for your game on Sunday. XXX
Got to go with it got to roll with it. XXX Wasn’t that Oasis. Also don’t look back in anger XXX
Hello great game listened on radio. Could not of called it at all myself. The Liverpool singing made me cry at the beginning that song gets me every time. Watching on Match of the day tonight. Love Luck and Best wishes always XXX

Good luck for your next match on Tuesday hope you score. Hat trick? Love Luck and Kisses if permitting? XXX
Hello good to get in touch with you again. Congratulations on your teams win today. Hope your injury lately was not too serious. Trying recently to solve some of the problems I have had for so long people keep putting me backwards and I just want to move forward in my life. Some of the girls l work with were surprised when I pointed out that I trust nobody back here because of what happened to me many years ago. Especially women as when I was suffering it was them that kicked me when I was at my most vulnerable I have never forgotten that. My relationship with my family was also fractured, it is getting better but I was deeply disappointed and hurt it will take time. Keep well and hopefully injury free as much as possible. Love Luck and Kisses XXX Always
