I know about Gabriel Jesus, I've spoken to Man City Brazilians - Clichy

Manchester City defender Gael Clichy has revealed that he is well aware of new teammate Gabriel Jesus' qualities.

Jesus officially completed his £27million move from Palmeiras to City recently and many are excited to see what sort of an impact the Brazilian wonderkid will have at the Etihad Stadium.

Clichy is looking forward to playing alongside Jesus and has revealed that he is well aware of the youngster's talents after talking in length about the 19-year-old with the Brazilians currently present at the club.

The Frenchman said: "When team like City brings in a player he is a quality player, so it's always good to have someone coming in – fresh legs and a new body.

"He will need time to adjust but I hope he can be that good and make an impact as soon as possible. We will help him to get to his full potential as soon as possible, because in football people want results.

"I know he is really good, I've spoken to the Brazilian players – and a player from Brazil being bought by City is sure to have quality. It's an exciting moment for him, for us and for the fans and we hope he can score many goals."
