Gabriel Magalhaes admitted he chose Arsenal to follow his ‘dream.’ Actually, he has always been willing for Manchester United and Chelsea.
Gabriel has come a long way in a short space of time, having found himself out on loan, but he always believed that he would reach the very top.
Gabriel has struggled a lot within a short time. He was out on loan at Dinamo Zagreb in 2018. However, he would finally reach the peak. His deal with Arsenal ended up a £25 million ($33m) agreement.
“I was trying not to hear too much about transfer speculation because you always end up thinking about everything that’s going on,” the commanding 22-year-old told Arsenal Player.
“After Arsenal came into the equation, he [agent] told me about other clubs that were interested, but I chose Arsenal because it was a dream for me. It’s a club that I really like and always watched on TV, with fantastic history.
“Arsenal is a huge club, one of the biggest in the world, and I told my agent from the start that if Arsenal came in for me, I wanted to wear the shirt, play at the stadium and feel the fans’ support because it’s a club I’ve always watched.
“I’m now very pleased to be here today alongside top players. It’s a childhood dream of mine.”
