Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus has hinted he will make a decision about his future at the club towards the start of next week.
The 25-year-old is reportedly looking set to leave City this summer in search of more first-team opportunities with the arrival of Erling Haaland likely to hamper his current chances (ESPN).
A host of clubs have emerged as suitors to take on Jesus, with Tottenham reportedly keen on drafting him into Antonio Conte’s squad (Telegraph), although rivals Arsenal have also been credited with a big interest (The Guardian).
And Jesus, after scoring in Brazil’s 5-1 win over South Korea, now looks to have set a date of when a decision on his next move will be made, hinting some action could occur early next week.
He said (via Metro): “I’m looking to see what’s best for me and above all, for my career. From Tuesday, we’ll see what is the best.”
Jesus joined City in 2016 and has emerged as a steady and versatile option across the front line under Pep Guardiola. He has scored 95 goals in 236 appearances and scored eight times as City pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title this term (Transfermarkt).

It looks like Jesus will leave City this summer with Haaland expected to limit his chances of game time, but his price will be interesting given he has one year remaining on his contract.
He would be a very handy option that Tottenham could bring in to bolster their forward options and the move could tempt him with Conte there and Champions League football delivered.
But again, he won’t have guarantees of playing as a direct striker given Harry Kane already had that position covered.
