ARSENAL TO BATTLE REAL FOR BRAZIL STARLET
Arsenal are reportedly considering a move for Brazilian starlet Alan Guimaraes – but face competition from Real Madrid.
Real are said to have already agreed a verbal contract with the Palmeiras midfielder, although they want to discuss a lower fee as the 17-year-old has a £44million release clause.
Alan, as he is known, began his career at in the Sau Paulo youth team before switching to Palmeiras despite interest from Inter Milan.
The Brazil Under-17 star’ current contract runs out in 2019 and that has put many of Europe’s top sides on alert, with Liverpool and Manchester United also said to be keen on the midfielder, according to the report in The Sun.
