Outstanding Arsenal striker Gabriel Martinelli could have been playing for Premier League rivals Manchester United according to TalkSports.

The player himself confirmed this in one of his recent interviews as monitored by the above mentioned English media outlet.

According to Gabriel Martinelli, He spent 15 days training at Manchester United without the Red Devils signing him.

The Brazilian attacker further said that during his visit to Old Trafford, he met with players like Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and many more.

He was on trial at Manchester United four times as the Arsenal attacker had to travel from his native Brazil to England on four occasions between 2015 and 2017.

Martinelli has been a revelation since joining Arsenal from the Brazilian lower league club Ituano for just £6m last summer.

The 18-year-old is the second topscorer at Arsenal with 10 goals in all competitions behind leading goalscorer and club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has netted 16 goals in all competitions for his team.

Gabriel Martinelli scored his 10th goal of the season during the eventful Premier League game at Chelsea on Tuesday night.

Arsenal played around 65 minutes with ten men after former Chelsea center back David Luiz was sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity but the Gunners were still able to play a 2-2 draw at the home of Chelsea aided by the sensational solo goal from Gabriel Martinelli.
