Pablo Mari Arsenal move in danger of collapse

Pablo Mari’s move to Arsenal from Flamengo is in danger of not materializing because of a late hitch that has stalled negotiations between the two clubs.

The 26-year-old was in London alongside Arsenal sporting director Edu for a medical on Saturday which was completed, and it seemed as though there would be no issues with the deal being finalized.

However, a report from Daily Mail says that Mari has flown back to Brazil amid suggestions that a deal has not yet been agreed between Arsenal and Flamengo for a transfer fee which is £7m. Arsenal want the player on loan with an option to buy in the summer while Flamengo prefer an outright sale.

Meanwhile, another report from The Athletic states that Mari was due a return to Brazil before his move would be confirmed. It can be recalled that Mari joined Man City in 2016 but failed to make an appearance at the Etihad and permanently returned to Brazil in 2019 after loan spells at Girona, NAC, and Deportivo Ls Coruna.


He has been very impressive for Flamengosn established himself as the first Spaniard to ever win the Copa Libertadores. Meanwhile, it remains to be seen if a deal can be agreed between the two clubs before the deadline day on Friday.
