Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus has already been on the radar of most European football clubs but his Olympic performance might increase the interest towards him.
Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus is about to make the biggest step in his career so far and sign for a top European football club according to online betting news in Brazil. His main ambition is crystal clear: to take his skills to the next level and become one of the, or simply the best football player in the world. Many scouts and former footballers believe he has the ability to achieve that and become a top player. Hopefully he will show some of that incredible talent during the Olympic football tournament as well.
Can Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus perform even better than Neymar?
Gabriel Jesus is called “The New Neymar” and not without a reason. When you watch him playing, you just see a fast player easily dribbling through its opponents. He’s a real joy to watch and that’s what he will hopefully be capable of doing not only in the Brazilian league, but in the Olympic football tournament as well. Should he shadow over Barcelona star Neymar’s performance, that would be a definite answer whether or not his ambitions of becoming the best player in the world are real or not.
Gabriel Jesus can start scoring against South Africa
The Men’s Olympic Football competition starts on the 4th of August, on the -1th day of the Olympic Games. The Iraq v Denmark game kicks off the tournament and Brazil will play the second game versus South Africa. The hosting nation, with Neymar and Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus in its team, are clear favourites for the clash. The best odds you can find for a Brazilian victory is at Coral Sportsbook, where you can bet on Brazil to win for 1.13 (1/8) odds. The draw pays at 8.00 (7/1) and you can’t even bet on South Africa to win, which is pretty unusual from an online sportsbook, but I guess Leicester City taught them a great lesson the last season.
Bet on Gabriel Jesus leading Brazil as far as possible
Brazil will be the biggest favourites for this year’s Olympic football tournament. In a previous article of ours, we already mentioned one of the most surprising Olympic football facts: Brazil never won this tournament. When should they be capable of doing so if not in front of their own people, in their own country, having world class players like Marquinhos, Barca ace Neymar and Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus?

What’s going to be his next step?
Okay, probably not even he himself knows the answer to that question as of today. Earlier this summer, online betting sites in Spain believed that Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus will either sign for Barcelona or Real Madrid. In fact, he was on the radar of both Spanish giants. However, other rich clubs also discovered his talent and entered the race for his signature. Pep Guardiola might prove betting sites in Spain wrong as he wants the Brazilian wonderkid to strengthen his attacking third at Manchester City, but United are also interested.
In addition, other clubs like Juventus and Arsenal are also keen on signing the young talent. However, Juventus might be out after spending a Serie A record fee of €90 million for another striker, Gonzalo Higuaín. About his departure, Gabriel Jesus said that his deal was almost done and his family already knew where he was to go. Also, it will be made official soon. Most believe he signed for Manchester City and will remain at Palmeiras until January so that he can help his team to win the championship. We are looking forward to the official announcement.
