Gabriel Jesus puts new contract discussions on ice

The Daily Mail reports that Gabriel Jesus has put discussions of a new contract with Manchester City worth £90,000 a week on hold until the summer.

City are keen to tie the Brazilian forward to a new deal and had looked to have completed the formalities before Christmas, with the 20-year old in line for a substantial pay increase over the £65,000 a week that he currently earns.

Now, however, emerges reports that he has rejected their initial offer, with his representatives believing that he deserves more than £100,000 a week. Jesus, instead, will concentrate for the time being on matters on the pitch, with the Premier League title to be wrapped-up and a Champions League Quarter-Final with Liverpool looming.

There is also the World Cup for him to consider, with Brazil now amongst the favourites, after defeating Germany by a single goal in their friendly in Berlin, with Jesus himself scoring the winner.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
