Gabriel Jesus chose Manchester City over Manchester United – despite the latter offering a bigger salary.
Gabriel will leave Palmeiras for City in January.
The Manchester Evening News says as Europe's leading clubs targeted the teenage striker, agent Giovanni Branchini was mandated to help broker a deal.
And despite the interest of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona, Jesus was convinced to further his career under the guidance of Pep Guardiola at the Etihad.
It is believed that a bigger personal package was on offer from Old Trafford – but the brightest prospect in Brazil was advised to make City his next move as Guardiola embarks on overhauling the squad he inherited from Manuel Pellegrini.
