Former Arsenal captain William Gallas has downplayed reports that Gabriel Martinelli is wanted at Real Madrid and would succeed at the club.

The youngster has been in fine form this season, helping the Gunners to maintain the top spot on the log after 10 games.

 

However, Gallas said he does not feel Martinelli is ready to make the step up to a club of Real Madrid’s size just yet.

According to him, the 21-year-old is being overhyped.

‘I think Arsenal have to get that deal with Martinelli signed as quickly as possible,’ Gallas told Genting Casino.

 

‘I’m sure he’s hearing so many things about him, like Real Madrid being interested. Sometimes the player can be confused.

‘At the moment I think he’s playing well and Arsenal have to close that deal as soon as possible so he feels better in his mind.

 

‘I don’t think he’s good enough for Real Madrid yet.

‘In football after two or three games, everyone is raving about that player, “he’s magnificent” or “he’s a top-class player” but no, calm down, let him have a great season to get to another level. He’s still young, he’s only 21.

 

‘But if he goes step-by-step, he can go to a club like Real Madrid but right now he’s not ready.’
