Pep Guardiola unsure of Sergio Aguero's future at Manchester City

Jesus joined Pep Guardiola City squad this January and has had an immediate impact, scoring three goals in his last two games, including a victor against Swansea last weekend.

Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter has thanked Pep Guardiola for the "unbelievable touch" of wishing him luck with the birth of his child, which is due later this week.

"He is someone I have a massive amount of respect for".

Jesus has made an immediate impact at City after joining the club in a £27m deal from Palmeiras in January. If the manager asked me to play as a goalkeeper I'm capable of that too!

Arter and his partner Rachel tragically lost their stillborn daughter in 2015.

"I would like him to remain but I don't know what is going to happen", City boss Guardiola said of Aguero before the game as rumours swirl the Argentine will leave the club.

A well-deserved win at Bournemouth's Dean Court, a stadium at which other major contenders like Liverpool have slipped up this season, saw City move from fifth to second, eight points behind Antonio Conte's men.

"We need to show consistency, and keep winning".

Guardiola was taken by Jesus' display alongside Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane in a livewire forward line that dispatched Crystal Palace in the FA Cup last month and the onus is on his top scorer to dislodge one of the youngsters. He's so fast, his intensity has helped us a lot: 20 years old. "It's important is for us to focus on our game, and improve our performance, and my feeling in the last games is our performances are much, much better". "He hadn't played the last few games because these three guys - Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling - were incredible but Sergio was important for us before this game and he is still important for us now". I'm so happy that Manchester City have a player for the next few years.

Ronaldinho is also pleased with the fact that Pep Guardiola has seen enough in his compatriot to include him in City's Champions League squad for their round of 16 tie against Monaco.
