Man United reportedly hold positive contract talks with Gabriel’s agent & Everton also target the centre-half

Man United have positive contract talks with Gabriel’s agent

RMC Sport reporter Mohamed Bouhafsi has stoked belief that Manchester United could sign centre-back Gabriel from Lille this summer.

In a short update on Sunday, Man United fans are told that the Red Devils have held “a good meeting” with Gabriel’s agent:

Everton also target the centre-half

However, Man United face competition to sign the Brazilian defender.

Everton are also named as suitors by Mohamed Bouhafsi, as are Serie A side Napoli.

Moreover, Bouhafsi reports that a fourth club – who remained unnamed – are also interested in trying to sign Gabriel.


Who is Gabriel?

Gabriel is a 22-year-old Brazilian defender, who is under contract at Lille until 2023.

Last season in Ligue 1, Gabriel played 24 times for Lille. He scored once.


Where is Gabriel going: Man United or Everton?

Mohamed Bouhafsi also dropped one other key piece of information in his update on Sunday.

Neither Man United, Everton nor Napoli have yet lodged an official bid for Gabriel with Lille.

That update runs contrary to a previous report from La Voix du Nord.

The French newspaper claimed last week that three clubs – Man United, Napoli and Everton – have all posted €30m offers, including bonuses, to sign Gabriel.

La Voix du Nord also reported that Gabriel was favouring a move to Napoli.

However, Napoli only qualified for next season’s Europa League, while Man United have booked a place in the Champions League.

Everton, meanwhile, failed to qualify for Europe in 2020-21.
