How will Gabriel Jesus fare at Manchester City?
Although Manchester City can seemingly spend whatever they wish on big-name transfer signings due to the incredible surplus of resources on offer behind the scenes at the Etihad, £27 million for a largely unknown youngster – who has incidentally never plied his trade out of South America – does in-fact seem like something of a gamble at best.
