Arsenal have beaten Premier League rivals Manchester United to complete the signing of high rated teenage star Joao Virginia.
According to reports from Portugal, the Gunners have piped United to land Benfica goalkeeper Joao Virginia on a long term deal.
The high rated 15-year-old goalkeeper has reportedly signed a four-year deal at Arsenal despite being on trial at United earlier this year and even believed to have been on the verge of signing for the Red Devils.
But Arsenal reportedly stepped into the picture recently and have moved swiftly to snap up the player; and now, the Portugal U16 star will follow newly signed youngster Donyell Malen and Ismael Bennacer to north London this summer.
