Gabriel Jesus has been told it “might be the right time to leave” Manchester City after the club confirmed an agreement to sign Erling Haaland.

Haaland will join City from Borussia Dortmund in the summer after they activated a 60million euro (£51.2m) release clause in his contract.

The 21-year-old has scored an incredible 85 goals in 88 appearances for Dortmund since joining from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020, and Rivaldo reckons he will soon be challenging for both team and personal honours at City.

“After two seasons of affirmation in European football with Borussia Dortmund, no one has any doubt anymore of the enormous quality of this young player, who will certainly be a great weapon for City to attack next season,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“He arrives with some Champions League experience, plenty of Bundesliga goals and a great desire to fight for major titles so he and City could be a very successful partnership in the coming years.

“His speed, finishing and strong shooting will combine very well with English football and I imagine that he will be one of the top scorers in the country for many years, and consequently competing strongly for the Ballon d’Or because he will also fight for the Champions League, Premier League, etc.”

Jesus, meanwhile, has been in a rich vein of form recently, scoring six goals in three games at the end of last month, but Rivaldo believes his fellow Brazilian should look to move on this summer.

“I have been saying for a while that Gabriel Jesus has the quality to be a starter at Manchester City and he has ultimately shown it in recent weeks with great performances and many goals, however, the arrival of Haaland will make life difficult for him next season.

“So, I believe it might be the right time to leave as his notoriety is on the rise with his good form and many clubs are looking at him.

“The best way to solve all this would be to sit down and talk to Pep Guardiola in order to know if he will have a place as a regular starter next season, something that is difficult, and if the answer is as expected, then seek an exit to another big English club or even in Spain.

“With his speed and intelligence on the pitch I think he could fit in very well at some of the best clubs in Spain.”
