Guardiola reveals Jesus could be out for the season

But the impressive 19-year-old, who has scored three goals in five appearances, now faces up to three months out after breaking his foot in Monday's Premier League win at Bournemouth.

Jesus is now in Barcelona having been operated on by renowned surgeon Dr Ramon Cugat.

To make sure that the young striker makes a full and swift recovery, Guardiola is expected to send Jesus to the clinic of Dr Ramon Cugat in Barcelona.

But Guardiola's decision as to Jesus's replacement is complicated by the looming Champions League last 16 first leg tie with French club Monaco, which takes place at the Etihad on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Jesus's team mate and countryman Fernandinho has revealed he is hopeful the striker may be able to return before the end of the season.

"People say [he will be out] between two and three months".

Aguero is now set for an extended run in the side and Guardiola said: "Sergio has to do what he's done all his career, nothing more".

That situation has sparked fresh speculation over the long-term future of Aguero but Guardiola has been pleased with his attitude. I don't have doubts about Sergio.

He started City's last three games, scoring three goals, with Sergio Aguero relegated to the substitutes' bench.

Former Inter President Massimo Moratti is also a known fan, insisting the former Palmeiras man made him 'fall in love with football again. "Every player has how own qualities that he has to show".

"Just go there, play as best as possible, that's all".
