Mundo Deportivo have recently come out with a new report stating that Barcelona had the chance to sign Arsenal prodigy, Gabriel Martinelli, back in January.
They claim the 18-year-old was actually on a trial over at their facilities and even played some football with their Juvenil A and Juvenil B squads.

Unfortunately, the board decided that the youngster was not good enough so the club did not proceed with his signing.
Fast forward some months in the future and Martinelli is looking like a real talent who’s just waiting to emerge from his cocoon.
The 18-year-old has already scored seven goals in just nine games he has played for the Gunners, including three that he netted in the Europa League.
Upon hearing this update, however, many Barcelona fans were simply not surprised while one fan seems to think that the Blaugrana will get the player in the future anyway.
You can see some of their reactions and comments down in the collection of tweets below:
