Major League Soccer side New York City FC have signed Brazilian winger Gabriel Pereira. The 20-year-old winger joins the club from Corinthians and has signed a contract until 2026 with an option for 2027. Reports from Brazil suggest that NYCFC have paid $5.5 million for the player. But Corinthians will receive just $3.85 million of that fee. The remaining $1.65 million goes to Pereira’s former youth club Guarani Futebol Clube. That fee ranks Gabriel among the club’s most expensive all-time signings (overview). 

“In Gabriel, we’re acquiring a very talented and highly regarded prospect that we know will bring a new attacking dimension to our team,” NYCFC sporting director David Lee said in a club statement. “Gabriel is a quick, skillful, and dynamic left-footed winger that can take on opponents in 1v1 situations. His First Team appearances for a Club the size of Corinthians at such a young age highlight how talented he is. The fact that players of his quality continue to choose NYCFC is a testament to the way we work and develop young players, with a commitment to finding a pathway for them to realize their full potential.”

Gabriel first broke into Corinthians’ first team in 2020 and has scored two goals and three assists in 48 appearances. Although most adept at the wing, the 20-year-old can play several positions. “Gabriel will add further depth and competition to an already talented group of attacking players at the Club,” Lee said.
