Man City target Gabriel Jesus focused on Olympics but Palmeiras exit likely

Gabriel Jesus has indicated that his future will soon be decided.

The 19-year-old Palmeiras forward continues to be linked with a summer transfer to Manchester City with some outlets indicating that a deal is set to soon be finalised.

However, Jesus, who will more than likely be loaned back to Palmeiras as he is not eligible to obtain a UK work permit, is not too concerned about his club future at present as he sets his sights on Olympic gold with Brazil at the 2016 Rio Games.

"My future is about to be decided, my family, my representatives and Palmeiras know where I want to go, my focus is all on the national team, and that gold medal," the forward said.

"The negotiations are almost complete, but my focus is here."
