Mari to Arsenal deal back on

Arsenal edging closer to agreeing on a deal to sign Flamengo defender Pablo Mari on loan with an option to buy for £12m.

Reports suggest the deal was "in the balance" on Monday after Flamengo alleged that Arsenal changed the term of the deal.

It is believed Arsenal corrected the initial structure of the deal after a Flamengo director claimed they had changed the terms, but a breakthrough in talks has increased confidence that a deal can be done.

Arsenal proposed initial £4m loan fee to sign the Mari until the end of the season with a further £8m option to sign him permanently in the summer.

Mari was in London last weekend for medical but returned to Brazil on Monday to resume pre-season training at Flamengo.
He is expected back in the UK before Friday deadline to finalise his move.
