Istanbul giants deny bid for Man Utd & Arsenal target Barbosa

Jeremain Lens

Fenerbahce have released a statement on their official website denying reports linking them with a move for the Santos striker Gabriel Barbosa.

The Yellow Canaries state that they have not made a bid for the 19-year-old.

Gabriel broke into the first-team at Santos two seasons ago and has since attracted interest from a number of top European clubs.

The Express states that Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are all interested in signing the young star.

However, Barcelona already have a ‘first-right‘ clause for Gabriel, which was agreed when the Catalan giants signed Neymar from Santos.

Gabriel scored eight goals in 31 games for Santos in the Brazilian Serie A last season. The 18-year-old made his first team debut in May 2013 when he was just 16 years-old and has gone on to score nine times in 43 appearances.
