Manchester City ready to help Gabriel Jesus after family return to Brazil

Manchester City ready to help Gabriel Jesus after family return to Brazil

Guardiola repeated his insistence that City would not be making any moves in the January transfer window and pointed out it's rarely a good time to make a major acquisition.

"If you don't have injuries and are satisfied with the squad, you go with them".

"For loan players maybe it can happen, for a short time, but I don't think the big clubs buy players for just six months and important players are not sold in that period".

Guardiola said he had not spoken to Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgium global went straight down the tunnel after being substituted in the 9-0 Carabao Cup thrashing of Burton Albion.

'Sergio after Liverpool was sick, ' he added. But when it's 1-0 it just hurts that little bit more.

Guardiola hopes to have the Argentine back for the game against Wolves on Monday, with Vincent Kompany keen to prove his fitness too. The rest are fit.

"You have to try and help them, all we can do is tell them we are here".

Guardiola also claimed City will do everything they can to help Gabriel Jesus given the striker's family are travelling back to Brazil.

'The private life is the private life and if they need something we are there.

"But of course we cannot substitute the mother and, when the family can't be there, it's hard". "But it is what it is and he has to handle that situation".

Ederson, Danilo and Fernandinho are all Brazilian, while Jesus shares a language with Portugal global Bernardo Silva.

Report via BBC Sports in the early part of the month suggest that the Blues want more than £20m from Bayern if they are to sanction the youngster's switch to the Allianz Arena.
