Gabriel Jesus and Barcelona ace Neymar have matching tattoos

Palmeiras striker Gabriel Jesus has found himself dubbed the "new Neymar" for several years now, with his tricky, fleet-footed attacking play quickly drawing comparisons with the Barcelona star.

However, it would appear that the pair, who were both born and raised in Sao Paulo, share more than a passion for making defenders look foolish, with Neymar revealing that they both have matching tattoos.

Neymar first revealed his new calf ink back in December, depicting a young Brazilian boy playing football in the streets and dreaming of making it to the very top of the game.

It has since emerged that Jesus has a near-identical copy of the image tattooed on his forearm.

Obvious plagiarism issues aside, this is kind of sweet.
