Transfer report: Paris Saint-Germain poised to beat Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United to ‘new Neymar’

19 May

Paris Saint-Germain are leading Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United in the race for Santos star Gabriel Barbosa.

The 19-year-old Brazilian has already been tipped for a big future, with scouts comparing him to Neymar.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have been watching the striker this season, as have Bayern Munich.

But according to Barbosa’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro, Paris Saint-Germain are the club who have made the first move.

“I have spoken a lot with Olivier Letang (PSG’s Sporting Director),” Ribeiro told Radio Bandeirantes.

“Now, the French league is finished, they will take a look at possible signings. The dream of the president is to win the Champions League, they have a lot of money to invest in football.

“Maybe Gabriel will be an option. But everything is already good. He is happy at Santos. He has a contract, he is in great form, so we will wait for what is next.

“Santos have nothing to lose. Gabriel has great potential and, if it is not now, he will be a fantastic return on the investment that the club made in the future. It is a question of time.”
