Manchester City have signed 19-year-old Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras on a five-year contract, the Premier League club announced on Wednesday.

Player to stay at Palmeiras until turn of year

Jesus, who is to cost City an initial fee of £27 million (32.2 million euros), will remain at Palmeiras until December before moving to Manchester in January.

He is currently on duty with hosts Brazil at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

"We'll have a great future together"

"Manchester City is one of the best clubs in the world so I'm really pleased to sign," Jesus said in comments published on the City website.

"We have many great talents in the team and a fantastic manager in Pep Guardiola that I can learn so much from.

"I'm looking forward to showing the City fans what I can do and I think we'll have a great future together!"

Jesus has scored 26 goals in 67 first-team appearances for Palmeiras.
