Gabriel Jesus fractures eye socket


It was a sight that no fan would have wanted to see, especially after Gabriel Jesus had recently returned due to an injury.

City’s 20-year-old striker was stretched off in the friendly game between Brazil and Argentina after being elbowed in the face by none other than his own Blues teammate Otamendi.

 Jesus has given reassurances over his injury but could do without an injury problem before pre season has even begun. However, Brazil have advised City of the extent of the injury and they will not be replacing him in the squad for the upcoming Australia friendly.


The released and retained list was published by the club on Friday, while Joe Hart started for England on Saturday. He admitted before the game that he could stay at City next season but he is reportedly a target for West Ham, who also have their eyes on Kelechi Iheanacho.
