Sao Paulo manager furious his talented player joining Arsenal

Arsenal, Six Sports

Arsenal is on the verge of completing a deal with another talented Brazilian winger. Hearing this, Sao Paulo manager Rogerio Ceni is quite furious. The Brazilian will soon be a part of the Gunners fraternity.

Since the arrival of Edu Gaspar, the London club has continuously tapped the Brazilian market to sign quality young footballers. No doubt, the Land of Canaries produces a plethora of quality players each generation. Three years back, Arsenal signed Gabriel Martinelli and since then he’s one of the most protected assets at the Emirates Stadium. The club will soon sign another exciting winger from Brazil for a fee in the region of £3 million.

Fabrizio Romano revealed last week only that Arsenal agreed on a deal with the Brazilian club for Marquinhos. The move will soon be completed and is expected to be announced in a few days. Arsenal fans are excited to see how the Brazilian can fare in their colors.

Sao Paulo boss frustrated

Meanwhile, the Sao Paulo boss expressed his frustration regarding this transfer. Rogerio Ceni, the present manager of the Brazilian club said the 19-year-old was very much in his plans for next season, via the Brazilian media outlet BolaVIP. He also wanted to hand him a new deal to stay at the club. However, his club went ahead and sold the youngster to Arsenal instead which ostensibly irritated him.

Ceni is reportedly ‘very angry’ with the club. Moreover, selling him, they agreed to a deal with Arsenal for a transfer fee well below his actual valuation. He’s so furious that he decided not using talented youngsters with short contracts and at the risk of getting lured by European clubs.
