Manchester City announce new Gabriel Jesus contract with brilliant video

Manchester City have been given a boost with the news that striker Gabriel Jesus has signed a five-year contract until 2023. I'll be happy if we arrive at the end being there [in contention] in April and May.

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.

The Brazilian, 21, scored 13 times last season as City won the Premier League title.

Despite that disappointment he is again set to challenge Sergio Aguero for a starting berth in the City line-up as they pursue more silverware following their league and Carabao Cup success in 2017-18.

Sarri will speak to them before the FA Community Shield on Sunday and the task of closing the gap on runaway champions City and his good friend Pep Guardiola. "The style of play will be flawless for English football".

Courtois and Hazard are due back at the club on Saturday as are other players who reached the World Cup semi-finals.

During the call she says that "This season is going to be unbelievable because you are the man!"

The approach known as "Sarri-ball" will grace Stamford Bridge this season as the Blues move away from a mainly defensive outlook. Pedro has signed a one-year extension to keep him at Chelsea until 2020, while Arsenal have announced that Alex Iwobi has signed a new long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium.

"Yes, we were close, but in the end Jorginho chose to stay with Sarri", Guardiola said. "Now we face Manchester City in the Community Shield". Brian McClair, who played for United from 1987 to 1998, told BBC World Service Sport: "You should, at some point, look as though you are enjoying it. Jose maybe enjoys himself internally but from a football point of view, the Manchester United fans would very much welcome to see him smiling and laughing at appropriate times". It was a very positive conversation. After winning the players can have the "I'm really good" mentality but that's the moment you go down. "Congratulations to him [for his new contract] and thanks to him for his trust to stay with us for longer".
