Jesus failed to find the back of the net in Russia as Brazil were knocked out by Belgium in the quarter-finals, but he was instrumental in City’s record-breaking season last term, scoring 13 times with the highlight coming on the last day of the League at St Mary’s.
The Brazilian international managed seven league goals in his first season (2016/17) that was cut short by injury
The 21-year-old joined City from Brazilian side Palmeiras in January 2017 for an initial fee of £27m.
City manager Pep Guardiola has tended to alternate Jesus with Sergio Aguero in his preferred formation which features a lone striker.
The Cityzens will confront F.A Cup winners Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday, followed by a trip to the Emirates to commence their title defence against Arsenal.
