Latest Pablo Mari update – a deal has reportedly been agreed

Arsenal finally agrees on Pablo Mari deal with the defender set to fly back to London.

Arsenal has finally reached an agreement with Flamengo over the transfer of Pablo Mari, according to reports coming out of Brazil.

The Spanish defender had come to London last week to complete his medical and put pen to paper on a deal that would see him join the Gunners.

The clubs had agreed on a transfer fee before he travelled to England however when he reached London Arsenal attempted to change the agreement to a loan deal with the option of a permanent move after this season.

One of the clubโ€™s board members had slammed Arsenalโ€™s decision to change the agreement, but the teams were still negotiating.

The Brazilian media outlet Globo is reporting that the clubs have finally reached an agreement with Arsenal agreeing to pay a loan fee of ยฃ4.2m for the rest of the season.

The Gunners would also have the option of signing the 26 years old permanently when the season ends.

He is scheduled to fly back to Arsenal this Wednesday to put final touches to the move.

Flamengo is also prepared for him to join Arsenal permanently as they recently acquired the services of Leo Pereira as his replacement.

Mikel Arteta will be delighted to have secured the services of a defender finally, however, until Mari is paraded in an Arsenal shirt it is best to wait and see how this one unfolds. It has hardly been the smoothest of transfer deals.

    Not that keen on Mari, would rather use that money on Matviyenko

    I’m not writing Mari off, matter of fact, I’m curious to watch him play as nobody knows who’ll be a hit or miss between Mari and Mykola.
    Just really hope he meets the expectations.
    Good luck to him

    He looks so built up like vijick V and also have almost same physic as fonte of southampton, he doesn’t need to be fast just get the work done and stay at the back four and organize those mergly we have there, we some pacefull defender but stealth has been missing for some time now.
    Hope they get a cm or compliment this or rather a fast attacking winger

  4. Good news, hope he will give his best to the club and the lovely fans.

  5. GB says:

    Yes, a good acquisition and also possibly Matvienko but Giroud to spurs, really? Iโ€™ve only just forgiven him for going to Chelsea!

    1. Admin Martin says:

      Forget Giroud, Matvienko article scheduled in 30 mins mate

  6. Tatek Girma says:

    Next Matviyenko please. We have to overhaul our defensive area to the required level.
