Marcos Leonardo news

Leonardo to leave Santos soon

Manchester United and Arsenal target Marcos Leonardo is set to be available in the transfer market this winter.

The Brazilian striker was linked with a move away from Santos last summer but a deal did not materialise in the end.

Roma were deemed favourites to land his signature, but disagreements over the price tag saw him stay with his club.

However, Leonardo is expected to move to Europe in January and the same has been confirmed by his representative.

United and Arsenal are both looking to add a young striker to their ranks and they are likely to enter the race for him.

Leonardo has had a fine campaign with the Brazilian outfit and he has netted 21 goals and provided four assists.

He has not had the same hype as Endrick but has huge potential and could become a world-class striker in the future.

United and Arsenal may need to pay around €25m to sign him in January.
