​Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has reiterated his intention to force himself into Pep Guardiola's first team, claiming that he was not moving anywhere amid transfer speculation. 


The Selecao striker has found chances hard to come by last season in City, especially in the 2018/19 season. After a breath taking start to his career in England, he was halted by injuries and Sergio Aguero has hence taken full advantage of it, especially this season, scoring 32 goals in 46 appearances and helping them win an unprecedented domestic treble. 



Jesus, who is with Brazil on the conquest to win the Copa America 2019, said to ​Daily Mail:


"[Aguero] is a legend at the club - he's the top scorer [of all time], obviously as a player I always want to play, but I'm happy to help and I respect Sergio. I think it's out of the question that Aguero leaves and me too", he added.


City have also been linked with Benfica's young starlet Joao Felix, who would provide them with versatility and could be Sergio Aguero's long term replacement in the future, with the Albiceleste star turning 31 earlier this month. However, Jesus seems unfazed by this and welcomes the competition, reassuring City fans that he was staying.


He scored 7 goals and registered 3 assists in 29 league appearances for the ​Premier League champions in 2018/19.
