Gabriel Jesus: Manchester City striker signs contract extension until 2023

Manchester City announce new Gabriel Jesus contract with brilliant video

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has claimed that rival Premier League teams, hijacked his moves for Alexis Sanchez and Jorginho.

Ahead of the traditional season curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, Guardiola said: "I don't know". For example, two years ago when we switched to three at the back then from the first day we were very good. "We are going to start to think what we have do to this season to maintain the level of last season".

A month later, Sarri was appointed Antonio Conte's successor, charged with reversing Chelsea's decline of last season and while the Wembley meeting means little in the context of the title race, a positive result would provide the Italian's reign with a welcome early lift.

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: "Gabriel is undoubtedly one of the best young forwards in world football, so to have him commit his future to us is a huge boost".

"We would like it [if Luis stays]".

"We ask for the work permit because we believe he can play with us, otherwise we would not be asking".

A high-octane set-up and such an adjustment to their work under Antonio Conte means Chelsea's players are likely to need more time to adapt to Sarri's attempts to bring a thrilling style.

"Yes, we were close, but in the end Jorginho made a decision to stay with Sarri", Guardiola said. Maybe it was a bit late to announce that but if you don't want to come, don't come. Sure, he said, "Come to England", every coach in this moment wants to work in England.

He netted 17 goals as City won the Premier League and the Carabao Cup last term.

Most of the players who were on duty at the World Cup have now returned to training but Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are still on their post-Russia breaks.

He has not been able to work with the likes of Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante so this should be seen as another pre-season work-out - even if winning the Community Shield will prove Sarri can deliver trophies.

Alexis was heavily linked with City in January after failing to join last summer but eventually signed for their neighbours, Manchester United.
