The following 48 hours could be decisive for the future of Gabriel dos Santos Magalhaes, class 1997 Lille's central defender.
The Brazilian has been in Napoli's viewfinder for months, and Napoli has asked some time to the player waiting to understand the circumstances around the possible transfer of Koulibaly to Manchester City.
As it stands, Arsenal seem the favorite club to sign the player, with a 26 + 4 million offer: the same amount offered by Napoli. But today Manchester United has joined the race for the defender, asking itself some time. A proper auction, but with tight deadlines: Gabriel would like to decide his future within 48 hours, and the weekend could bring new developments.
