David James questions Jesus over leaving best team in England for Arsenal


 Former England international, David James has questioned Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus over leaving the ‘best team in England’ for Arsenal.

Jesus has been linked with a move away from Manchester City this summer since the Premier League champions signed Erling Haaland from Dortmund and Arsenal are among the clubs monitoring him with interest.

But James believes there is still room for Jesus in Pep Guardiola’s squad at Etihad despite the signing of Haaland.

Speaking to Genting Casino (via Metro), James said: “If you look at Man City players’ appearances this season, Bernardo Silva and Rodri have played 30-plus Premier League games. But all the players in that attacking line-up have played around 25 games, so they are not playing every week. Pep’s (Guardiola) rotation has worked perfectly in the sense that they won the Premier League again.

I would imagine Haaland would fit into that mold, he is not going to play every game. Also with his injuries, there are question marks over whether he is physically capable of playing all the games. Jesus will have a shared role if he stays at Man City. They are not going to buy Haaland and start him every game, so there is still room for Jesus.”

“Why would he want to leave? You have the best team in England over the past five years, so would he risk it by moving somewhere else to Arsenal, who are not even in the Champions League?

“Or would he rather stay at Man City and try to get the Holy Grail, which is the Champions League?”
