Fans think Arsenal star Gabriel Magalhaes “must be fuming” after his hair transplant picture was plastered across taxis.
The Gunners centre-back has had a hugely eventful month both on and off the pitch. Rumours began circulating in August that the Brazilian was the subject of serious interest from the Saudi Pro League.
Gabriel was then dropped by Mikel Arteta for the three opening Premier League fixtures, raising even more question marks surrounding his future. The 25-year-old made his return to the starting-11 in the 2-1 win over Manchester United, where he made a match-saving manoeuvre to play Alejandro Garnacho offside.
And after receiving a call up to the Brazil national team ahead of the international break, the defender is now seemingly the face of a hair transplant clinic.

Gabriel last year received a hair transplant at Turkish Dr Cinik’s clinic. The company has now seemingly sought to use him as a high-profile client to market itself in extraordinary fashion.
One surprised fan took to Twitter to post a photo of one of London’s famous black cabs, which bore an eye-catching image of Gabriel on the side. It showed the former Lille man pre-hair transplant, along with his full name and the website and contact details for the Dr Cinik clinic.
Fans on social media were left in tears of laughter as they pointed out the not-so flattering use of the Arsenal star’s image. And they debated how he would feel being associated with the hair treatment company so brazenly.

One Arsenal fan responded to the picture: "If I'm big Gabi I'm fuming," while another Gooner wrote: “Absolutely violated my man.”
A third pointed out: “They made my boy the face of receding hairlines ffs,” while a fourth added: “They did him so dirty.”
A fifth joked: “He got the hairline for free but he sold his soul.”

Dr Cinik’s website proudly claims: "Gabriel struggled with hair loss, significantly impacting his confidence on and off the field. He was drawn to the reputation and expertise of Dr. Emrah Cinik, and felt he was in good hands from his first consultation to the final result.
“Gabriel’s positive experience at Dr. Cinik Clinic and the incredible results he achieved speak for themselves.”
Fans may get the chance to witness Gabriel’s stunning hair-line once more when Brazil take on Bolivia and Peru over the next week, with the defender expected to earn his first senior cap after the blow of being left at home for last year’s World Cup.
