Man United plotting to hijack Arsenal's Gabriel Magalhaes bid

Manchester United have made a dramatic late bid for Arsenal target Gabriel Magalhaes, who is also reportedly on the radar of Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain.

The 22-year-old Brazilian was set to join Arsenal or Napoli according to Lille president Gerard Lopez.

“I think it’s fair to say that Arsenal are a high interest to him, Napoli is a high interest to him.

“We’ve given him plenty of time to make up his mind. We’ve always said, ‘look if we have an agreement with two clubs or three clubs and the agreements are the same then we are not going to create a bidding competition’.

“It’s always fair. We always say ‘whenever we have the number that we want you are free to choose’.

However, a more recent report from Gianluca Di Marzio claims that the Red Devils have taken an interest in Gabriel.
