Arsenal sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City on a long-term contract

Arsenal has signed Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City on a long-term contract. The 25-year-old spent five-and-a-half years at the Etihad, a period which saw him win 11 major trophies, including four Premier League titles.

In total, he played 236 matches for City, scoring 95 goals.

“It’s been a pleasure to play for Manchester City,” Jesus said.

“I feel like I am a better player now than when I arrived – and to win 11 trophies has been amazing.

“My four Premier League titles are particularly special for me.

“I want to thank everyone at City – the manager, my teammates and the fans – for all the support they have given me over the past five-and-a-half years.”

Thanks, Man City and all the people who made this club my life for all these years. Time to live a new dream!

Jesus agreed to move to Manchester from Brazilian side Palmeiras in August 2016, with City fending off interest from a host of top European clubs to secure his signature.

But he remained with Palmeiras for the remainder of the Brazilian league season and was instrumental in helping them win their first league title since 1994.

He officially joined City in January 2017 and made an immediate impact, scoring seven times in 11 matches, despite a fractured metatarsal hampering his progress
