Gabriel Jesus: Fernandinho preparing me for life at Man City

Gabriel Jesus has revealed that compatriot Fernandinho is helping him prepare for his impending move to Manchester City.

City splashed a sizeable £27million to secure the services of Jesus from Palmeiras this summer and the 19-year-old will be linking up with the Premier League powerhouses in January.

Despite his immense talent, Jesus will surely need to adapt to life in Manchester when he arrives and the Brazilian international has gone on to reveal that compatriot Fernandinho is already providing him advice in order to make the transition from Brazil to England easier.

Jesus said: "The more knowledge I have about the club ahead of my arrival the better.

"It will be a shock to me, but I have talked to him (Fernandinho) a lot about everything that could help me.

"I think he will be a big help there. But so will my mother, who will be coming with me."
