Arsenal sign transfer papers. Gilberto having medical on Wednesday. Terms of the transfer revealed

By 1970’s Gooner

It seems that where we go the rest of the English press follows!

First we revealed that Gilberto was taking Panathinaikos’s interest seriously and that Arsenal were ready to let him go (Arsenal agree transfer for midfielder as agent flies to Athens to discuss personal terms).

The press takes a few days to realize that something is going on. We then follow that with revealing that Ajax are showing interest and are prepared to up their bid for him.

Then we first reveal that Gilberto’s representatives came away from Athens having agreed personal terms on behalf of Gilberto (Gilberto agrees personal terms for imminent transfer).

Now we can reveal that Arsenal have formally approved the transfer to Panathinaikos by signing the legal documents and dispatching them to Athens.

Ken Friar has spoken to the Greek press and revealed that Arsenal have agreed a fee for the transfer. He also said that they agreed to let Gilberto go to Panathinaikos because it was his choice and they did not want to stand in his way.

“We have agreed to the transfer and signed the papers. It is now an official agreement” he said.

“We had other offers but we respected Gilberto’s desire to sign for Panathinaikos” he continued.

It seems therefore that all that remains now is for Gilberto put pen to paper and the transfer will be done.

He will travel to the Greek Capital in the middle of next week to do so after undergoing a medical.

He revealed to the Panathinaikos President that he would have signed the papers while on holiday but the lack of a fax machine at his ranch in Brazil meant that he couldn’t do it form there!

Good luck Gilberto.

Who gets what in the Gilberto transfer deal:

Gilberto: £6m for a three year contract plus bonuses
The Base Soccer Agency: £ 0.8m
Arsenal: £1.2m

Sad to see him go, knew he had to leave soon....Arsenal Legend in my opinion. Wish him all the best and thanks for being a model arsenal player.

This is gonna get the arsenal midfield transfer rumour mill going even faster... Barry? Veloso? Bischoff?... How about sticking with Song, Denilson & Diaby..They deserve their oppurtunities! gooner4life!

i have doughts about this first of gilberto has already stated he wants spend the rest of his career ar arsenal dispte spendingmost of last season on the bench,secondly if the tranfer had gon through it would have been anouned on the arsenal website and on skysports,i think it might be the work of his agent try ing to best deal possible for his client would be fist time and wont be the last, but evon if he stas this season we will have find long term replacment,we have song ,diaby and delinson, or he might have buy another player.

So sad that in the end he became almost a laughing stock - he deserved better than that. Laters.

£1.2m is way too cheap for Gilberto.
Are we desperate for the dough???????

Good luck Gilberto.
