Following the many reports from Brazil saying Arsenal reached a deal for the signing of São Paulo winger Marquinhos, we’ve seen surprising news this week claiming Wolverhampton Wanderers were taking legal action against the transfer.
It was reported that Wolves claimed to have a pre-agreement signed by the player, and therefore hired a law firm in Brazil to complain about his potential transfer to the Gunners.
So Goal Brasil show up today with an update on the situation, claiming there’s no awareness about the alleged deal with the Molineux side.
It’s claimed that the pre-agreement with Wolves is unknown by São Paulo, Arsenal, Marquinho’s staff and those responsible for the talks between the Tricolor and the Gunners.
Following the initial agreement for Arsenal’s signing, it’s said intermediaries have been in London since last week to sort the ‘last details and bureaucratic issues’ for the move.
So the transfer is claimed to be on, with the Gunners spending €3m on the winger.
As for whether Wolves will actually come with an official complaint about all this, it seems we’ll have to wait and see.
