MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly made a last-gasp attempt to hijack Arsenal’s Gabriel Magalhaes move.
Gianluca Di Marzio claims the Red Devils have made an 11th hour bid despite the Lille star looking set for an Emirates switch.
Gabriel, 22, is believed to have already agreed a five-year contract with Mikel Areta’s side.
And reports even claimed he was ready to undergo a medical after Lille accepted Arsenal’s £22million bid.
However, United have been keeping tabs on the situation this month.
And it now looks like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a bid after making a new centre-back to partner Harry Maguire his priority.
United could indeed be in the driving seat now as they can offer higher wages than Arsenal.
The Red Devils will also be playing in next season’s Champions League.
And Gabriel is believed to have given himself the weekend to think things over.
Arsenal thought they had a deal done after seeing off interest from Napoli.
But Arteta could be forced to look elsewhere following United’s game-changing move.
