Arsenal Fan DM'd Charlie Patino Telling Him PSG Wanted To Sign Him On Football Manager, His Reply Was Brilliant

Arsenal wonderkid Charlie Patino replied to a supporter who told him Paris Saint-Germain were trying to sign him on Football Manager.

The 18-year-old made his Gunners debut against Sunderland last night and had an huge impact in the Carabao Cup quarter final, scoring the fifth goal in a 5-1 thrashing after entering the fray in the second half.

In one chap's FM save, Patino was coming along nicely and attracting interest from PSG, who put in a bid.

The fan rejected the offer but virtual Patino wasn't happy - which led to the supporter DMing him on Instagram asking for some "advice on how to get virtual Charlie Patino back on board"

Incredibly, he received a reply. After sending a laugh emoji, Patino instructed the fan to tell his virtuals self to "grow up" and "remind him Arsenal is a classier club".

He signed off by writing, "Hope I win you trophies on FM".

Posted on the out of context Arsenal Twitter account, the post has garnered over 21,000 likes.

Patino was signed by Arsenal as an 11-year-old and they paid £10,000 compensation to Luton Town to bring him into the fold.

Many scouts at the club described him as the best they had ever seen and he signed his first professional deal with the club last year.

And on Tuesday night the England Under-19 international replaced fellow academy graduate Emile Smith-Rowe and enjoyed a scoring start in first-team football.

"A beautiful moment," manager Mikel Arteta said post-match on the dream debut for Patino.

"He is a kid that is coming through our system, a lovely kid.

"He is training with us almost every week. It was a dream. As a debut to come here, to score in front of our fans, a really special moment."

On Twitter, the youngster wrote it was "the best day of my life".
