Manchester United and Arsenal are set to battle it out off the pitch in the pursuit of talented Spanish midfielder Gabri Veiga who plays for Celta Vigo in La Liga. Both the English giants are immensely impressed by his performances on a regular basis and want to sign him in the next summer transfer window.
Veiga is just 20 years of age and he has already become one of the most sought after talents in Spain. He is currently enjoying his breakthrough season with Celta Vigo and he has established himself as one of the most exciting talents in La Liga. Get the best La Liga odds on W88.
Spanish media outlet AS have now claimed that Veiga’s consistency and talents have brought the attention of both Arsenal and Manchester as both Mikel Arteta and Erik Ten Hag are taking an active interest in him.
Veiga’s rise in La Liga has been even great considering the fact that he did not even have a squad number at the beginning of the season. However, he has quickly turned things around and has forced his presence into the fold for Celta.
Behind club captain Iago Aspas, a former Liverpool failure, Veiga has undoubtedly been their best player and has also racked up an impressive amount of goal contributions at this stage of the season. Enhance your football viewing experience with W88 betting.
The Celta Vigo academy graduate has scored six goals and has registered two assists so far this season which has naturally caught the eye of big European teams.
Although Arsenal and Manchester United are said to be leading the list, they are far from being the only clubs who are keen on prying the 20-year-old away from Celta Vigo next summer. There are more Premier League clubs who are also interested in securing his services.
Celta are obviously keen on keeping one of their prized assets, but should Veiga declare his desire in a new challenge the Spanish outfit are thought to be confident they will generate a record transfer fee by cashing in on him.
The midfielder has a contract with the club until 2026. Therefore, any club wishing to move him away from Celta will have to pay a premium price in accordance with the club’s wishes. It is also believed that Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are also interested in the player. Follow W88 football for all the latest updates on this story.
