Since arriving directly from Brazil, Jesus has scored 24 goals in 53 appearances for the Blues, and has proven to be one of the biggest bargains of recent times.
Speaking to the official site, the 21-year-old said: “I would like to thank the fans for the welcome and for how well they have treated me. I can say that it was the best decision I’ve made in my life to come to Manchester City because whilst I’m here I’m improving as a professional and as a person.
“Also thanks to the Club for being so organised and focused since I arrived. Pep had an important role in my signing, but also the Club. City is a huge Club and it is getting bigger and bigger so I just want to say thanks for everything. I hope that I can keep making the fans happy.”
