Premier League rival attempt to hijack Arsenal move for Brazilian

Manchester United has made a late attempt to hijack Arsenal’s move for Brazilian defender, Gabriel.

The 22-year-old is one of the most sought-after defenders around Europe at the moment and he looks to be heading to the Premier League.

Everton, Chelsea and Napoli have all been linked as rivals to Arsenal for his signature, as reported by the Sun.

However, the latest reports have claimed that Arsenal has won the race for his signature after having a bid accepted by Lille (HITC).

The Gunners are prepared to offer him a five-year deal to join them this summer and he looks set to have his medical soon.

However, Gianluca Di Marzio is claiming that Manchester United has made a late offer for the defender and that has caused him to ask for more time to decide his future.

Di Marzio claims that United is now in pole position to sign him because the Red Devils have more money to give him higher wages than that of his other suitors.

Arsenal has had to ask their players to take pay cuts to their contracts and that might be a sign that they have a price ceiling in terms of the wages that they are willing to offer to their incoming players.

  1. If reports are to be believed, then it’s all in the hands of the player. If he wants to join Arsenal he will sign the contract, if money is more important than playing beautiful football then he can go to United.
    Can’t force him to sign, but when you piddle around rather than handling business, transfers can get hijacked

    1. Durand, the deal is done. Gabriel is an arsenal player. He passed his medical and the only problem now is the quarantine issues.

      1. I don’t see man useless can win the race,arsenal are ahead of them since the player has already did and passed the medical…so let this man useless to waste thei r time…though the player himself will decide…

    2. Durand, does this club ever learn?
      Shades of Griesman and yet all three involved are no longer with the club!!!

      Now we have Huss Fahhy and it seems he is making a pigs ear of it as well – what a splendid job gazidis did with his three musketeers and UE.

      1. Ken you are right, maybe old Huss and Kronke are the culprits. Everyone but those two are gone, yet the piddling about remains.
        Methinks Arkham’s razor applies here, what do you think old friend?

  2. there is too much talent out there its hie tym they must search for someone who is willing to play for the gunners
