In an exclusive update on Matheus França, our sources close to the situation, have confirmed an intense tug-of-war between several clubs vying for his signature this summer. Among the interested parties are Premier League clubs Arsenal and Newcastle United, and Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
Arsenal have emerged as frontrunners for the Brazilian wonderkid. Under sporting director Edu, the Gunners have shown a keen interest in Brazilian talent, with Gabriel Jesus and Marquinhos among their recent acquisitions. Now, Mikel Arteta’s squad is looking to add França to their roster, with their scouts reportedly closely observing the player’s performances.
On the other hand, Newcastle United, which was already rebuffed with three bids for the young talent in January, has shown determination and promised to re-enter negotiations for the Flamengo starlet. Despite the rejection of their initial offers, our insiders believe that França remains firmly on Newcastle’s radar, particularly with Eddie Howe appreciating the player’s potential.
Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen are reportedly planning a summer swoop for França. The German club, under Xabi Alonso, sees França as an opportunity to bring in a South American wonderkid to bolster their ranks ahead of what they anticipate to be a significant summer transfer window.
Sources have confirmed that if a club is willing to offer in the range of 25 to 30 million Euros, Flamengo is likely to accept the bid. França, a right-footed attacking midfielder who often drifts in from the left, is considered one of football’s most coveted players. His quick feet make him almost impossible to dispossess, and he plays a significant role in dictating the game, even though he isn’t prolific yet. He has been compared to Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior and is set to be a key member of Brazil’s U20 World Cup squad this summer.
As the summer transfer window approaches, we will continue to closely monitor the situation surrounding Matheus França’s future and provide timely updates. It’s going to be an exciting period for the Brazilian wonderkid, with top clubs from England and Germany vying for his signature.
