Arsenal director of football Raul Sanlehi suddenly announced he was leaving the club early last week and many speculations have flown around as to why the Spaniard left and here’s another piece.
Perhaps this one was one of the reasons for Raul Sanllehi’s recent departure from Arsenal: 90 mins report that he didn’t want the Gunners to sign centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes, a deal which technical director Edu has been central to.
It looks like Edu has won out there, with the Gunners pushing for his signature, though recent reports suggested Manchester United wanted him at the last minute. Raul was reportedly unhappy with the decision to pick Edu’s decision over his.
However, those stories are given little credence by The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell, who says it’s more likely an attempt to speed up the deal and get either Arsenal or Napoli to complete the signing
