- Madrid are keeping tabs on Gabriel Martinelli thanks to his recent performances.
- Earlier, Daily Mail claimed that in order to scare Madrid off, Arsenal would give him a pay rise.
- Ronaldinho had predicted that the 18-year-old could emulate Ronaldo Nazario.
El Desmarque claim that Los Blancos have been monitoring the Brazilian after his recent impressive performances.
In an earlier report, the Daily Mail said that Arsenal were willing to award the 18-year-old a new contract. It would see his weekly salary go from £100,000 to £300,000.
Martinelli has already scored 10 goals and made four assists in 23 total appearances.
The youngster was recently praised by Ronaldinho, who said the rising-star reminds him of the Brazilian Ronaldo.
“We as Brazilians are very excited about him and his future. It is one thing to have the talent - but another at the age of 18 to have the confidence.
“He reminds me of Ronaldo and his first season in Europe. He scored 30 goals and people were thinking: ‘who is this 18-year-old Brazilian kid?'"
