Arsenal already planning to make Pablo Marí transfer permanent

Posted on February 27, 2020

Despite not having made his Arsenal first-team debut, the Gunners management have already notified Flamengo that they plan on making Pablo Marí’s loan deal a permanent one.

That’s according to reports out of Brazil, who claim that a deal, which would include Marí’s economic rights and performance bonuses, could be as much as an additional £9.25m (€11m).

The Flamengo centre-back is currently being loaned to Arsenal for the rest of the Premier League season, with the Gunners paying a €5m loan fee for his services, according to football data provider iSports API.

Flamengo themselves have already prepared for the player’s long-term departure by bringing in another left-footed centre-back, Léo Pereira from Athletico Paranaense, for €7m in the winter window, as per iSports API football data.

The rubro-negro also brought in long-time Santos stalwart Gustavo Henrique. Both centre-backs have received opportunities in the team but it’s still unclear which player will win the starting place next to Rodrigo Caio.

His former club Flamengo will go after their third title of the 2020 season when they host Ecuador’s Independiente del Valle in the second leg of the Recopa Sudamericana – the annual competition between the 2019 champions of the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana tournaments, noted by iSports football API.

The two teams drew 2-2 in Ecuador, though 2019 South American Player of the Year Gabigol missed out due to suspension.
