Gabriel Magalhaes drops a hint about his Arsenal future

Gabriel Magalhaes is wanted by clubs in Saudi Arabia and the defender has now dropped a hint about his future as Arsenal makes him not for sale.

Gabriel is one of the finest defenders in the Premier League, but he is now struggling to play as Mikel Arteta uses Ben White at centre-back and experiments with Thomas Partey at right-back.

This has seen more reports suggesting he could leave and at least one club in Saudi Arabia wants the former Lille man.

Arsenal does not intend to sell, but the defender’s idea of leaving is also important in determining his future.

As rumours persist about his departure, the Brazilian dropped a hint that he is not leaving on his Instagram account as he posted himself in an Arsenal shirt and captioned it: “Ready to write a New story!!!”

Just Arsenal Opinion

His Instagram post seems to suggest Gabriel wants to remain with us as we try to finally win the Premier League.

Last season, we came very close to achieving this and trust the boys that they can finally end our wait to be champions again.

We just need to offer them unwavering support, which will see them perform well on the pitch for us.

  1. That’s great news now get him back in beside Saliba & go sign another defender and attacker before deadline.

    Timer needs replaced & Someone to help Zink now Teirney is gone.

    Taveres, Holding, Lokonga are all still to leave along with Flo & Xhaka so money is availabe and without a doubt space in the squad.

    1. Actually Gabi should play not a request but a demand from fans of AFC all over the continents…we need smooth wins and not struggle to an extend needing players yet we have them

  2. When the gaffer dropped the Brazilian unexpectedly two games running, it was one of the first signs that the gaffer had lost the plot.

    Magalhaes was a mainstay of the runner up team in the last campaign, a player with superior arial prowess that relishes the physical side of the game drop suddenly, It all went horribly wrong from there onwards,
    His countryman Paulhino could hardly believe his luck lurking in the six yard with minimum fuss.

    1. How do you know it was unexpected? For us, yes, but I don’t think so for Gabriel given MA said that Gabriel knows why he isn’t playing.

      The Fulham game proves that it wasn’t a tactical decision. Something must have gone on behind the scenes.

  3. I don’t think Arteta will yield to pressure from the Gooners camp to reverse his deploying of Thomas Partey to the left back position in the team. And redeploy him back to the midfield at where he initially has been playing from.
    For, I think Arteta will not listen to any impromptu resentment coming from the Gooners quarter trying to compel him to adhere to what they think he should do.
    At home against Manchester United in the Epl on Sunday. I foresee Arteta still start Thomas Partey at left back in his starting XI team for the match. And will not bother or care of what any Gooner may think or say of him in his decision to start TP at left back for the match. The Gunners will beat the Red Devils in the match. And collect all the points at stake in it to the bag. And as result of their win, silence the critics of Arteta.

  4. Could he possibly be dealing with a slight injury? I hope that’s the case because it appears to be a bad decision if it was tactical! “Ready to write a new story”? A new story somewhere else??

  5. From my own point of view, I think since Alexander is available to start,he will drop Parthy back to midfield cos he will not use 2 inverted fullback
