Red-hot Martinelli had a trial in Barca’s Youth A team for two weeks

Arsenal’s red-hot youngster Gabriel Martinelli used to have a trial in the Barca Youth A team for two weeks, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Martinelli has scored 10 goals and made 2 assists this season so far, it is a pity for Barcelona that they are looking for Suarez’s replacement to play as forward.

MD reports that the Brazilian talent had had a trial in the Barcelona Youth A team for two weeks when he was 9 years old, but finally he didn’t stay.

Arsenal booked him last summer from the Ituano and the deal cost them just over €6m. A bargain for the Gunners, a ruin for Barca.
