Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will miss Vinicius Tobias, according to Real Madrid 90 mins.
According to the report, Madrid have agreed terms with Tobias despite interest from Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester City.
The Spanish giants are set to loan the 18-year-old Brazilian right-back from Shakhtar Donetsk until the summer if they want to give him a five-year deal.
Madrid have in principle already agreed on this deal.
Tobias, who joined Ukrainian giants Shakhtar from Internacional in January 2022, will initially join Madrid’s B team and will also train with Carlo Ancelotti’s senior team.
90 mins have reported that Arsenal and City were keen to sign the right-back but were forced to pull out of the race as the Premier League now won’t allow any players to join, despite FIFA and UEFA decisions allowing foreign players to move on a provisional basis.
Vinicius Tobias disappointment for Arsenal
Not being able to sign Tobias is a disappointment for Arsenal, in our opinion.
The teenager is a very good right-back who is only 18 and just starting his career.
Madrid’s signing of the Brazilian shows how highly valued he is and Arsenal may have missed out on a future star.
