Eight-time Brazilian Serie A winners Palmeiras are preparing to sell the 19-year-old after the Olympic Games in August, according to the Estado de S.Paulo newspaper, reports Xinhua.

It is understood Gabriel has a 30 million-euro ($34.4 million) buyout clause in his contract but Palmeiras would be willing to cede the forward for 24 million euros ($27.4 million) to Real Madrid, FCBarcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United or Bayern Munich, the newspaper said.
