He was already pictured in London and reported to be headed for his medicals ahead of a move to Arsenal, but now, reports in Brazil and England say that Pablo Mari is set to stay at Flamengo after talks between the two clubs stalled.
The 26-year-old defender was in London on Saturday, but according to ESPN Brasil, he will go back to Brazil.
The report claims that Flamengo is opposed to the terms of Arsenal's proposal and Mari, even after his medicals, will join his teammates in Brazil.
Mari was expected to be Mikel Arteta’s first signing with the Gunners, but they may have to look elsewhere.
Mari has played for Flamengo since July 2019 and was instrumental in the Rubro-Negro winning the domestic and Copa Libertadores crowns.
