Gabriel Jesus has reportedly broken his fifth metatarsal and will be between two and three months, as per reporter Vero Brunati.
Twitter: #JesusGabriel ruptura del 5to metatarsiano. Estará entre dos y tres meses inactivo. Mala suerte la del @ManCity esta temporada. (@verobrunati)
The teenage striker was substituted after just 14 minutes of Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Monday night with Sergio Aguero coming on in his place.
The Brazilian had replaced Aguero in Pep Guardiola’s starting line-up and had repaid his manager’s faith by putting in excellent performances and finding the back of the net against West Ham and Swansea City respectively.
If the worst case in terms of the reported timescale turns out to be correct, there’s a chance he could miss the rest of the season.
