Manchester City clinched a sixth Premier League title on Sunday, courtesy of a dramatic late comeback against Aston Villa. 

City knew that victory over the Villans would secure the title, but found themselves 2-0 down midway through the second half, meaning a Liverpool win would take the trophy to Merseyside.

The came the moment that Liverpool fans had been dreading, as Pep Guardiola’s side scored three times in five minutes to turn the game on its head and secure their fourth title in the past five seasons.

Captain Fernandinho then lifted the trophy after completing his final game for the club; the Brazilian’s contract expires this summer and he will end his nine-year stay in Manchester.

Another player who may have played his last game for the club is Gabriel Jesus, who has been heavily linked with a move away from City since the news of Erling Haaland’s imminent arrival broke.

The striker has deputised to Sergio Aguero for the majority of his City career, and will now likely be second choice behind Haaland if he does stay with the club.

Jesus looks likely to leave Manchester City this summer

Arsenal have been heavily linked with the 25-year-old, as they look to replace Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette, who are both expected to leave the club when their contracts expire this summer.

The player’s agent recently revealed that they had been in talks with the Gunners, and a deal was rumoured to be close.

According to The Telegraph, though, Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur are set to challenge the Gunners for the Brazil international’s signature.

The report claims that Spurs, buoyed by having beaten Arsenal to the final Champions League spot, are now set to battle it out for Jesus.

Antonio Conte’s side looked set to miss out on the top four, but victories over Arsenal, Burnley and Norwich City in their final three games secured their Champions League place.

Spurs now believe that they can persuade Jesus to join them instead of Mikel Arteta’s side, and will look to launch a move for the player in the coming days.
