Jesus has reportedly grown frustrated at being overlooked by Pep Guardiola in the starting line-up and he started just 21 Premier League games last season. But Thierry Henry explained back in April what City will be losing if they let Jesus leave.
“We saw that he scored four goals at the weekend – when he is in the box, he’s one of the three that is playing, or since (Sergio) Aguero left, he has that ‘nine’ instinct,” Henry said.
“He has what the number nine would smell. What I like with him is that when he puts pressure, whether it’s on the left, on the right or in the middle, he doesn’t have a problem defending in these situations by coming back and helping his team.”
