Manchester City monitoring RC Celta youngster Gabri Veiga; Willing to pursue £35 million move

Defending Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly in talks to bring in Celta Vigo midfielder Gabri Veiga, with the 20-year old’s immense talent attracting top clubs from around the world. In addition, the midfielder’s release clause of £35 million is a huge boost in the prospects of the clubs who wish to sign the youngster. The Celta academy product is reportedly being monitored by several top clubs of the world, including Manchester City, and three other Premier League clubs currently in the top 10. 

RC Celta Vigo President Carlos Mourino has spoken regarding the youngster and the club’s unwillingness to sell, but also admitted that they were powerless when the big clubs came knocking. With Guardiola looking to strengthen his engine room, Veiga could make the move to the Premier League. Bet on Your favourite Premier League club only on M88.

“We don’t want to sell Gabri Veiga, but they are going to buy him from us. And we can’t do anything to stop him from leaving. We know some of his offers and it is impossible to reject them, because he is too good and top clubs will be interested. There are several teams behind Gabri. Real Madrid? They haven’t asked us, we don’t know if they will have called the player. Of the top 10 in the Premier League, four have asked about him.” Mourino said.

Veiga has already scored nine goals during the course of the ongoing season, and is viewed as an ideal candidate to replace the likes of Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan, who could make their exit from the Etihad during the summer.

Bernardo Silva has been linked with a move away from Manchester for quite some time now, following a failed £70 million move to Atletico Madrid, and a rumoured transfer to the Camp Nou last summer. 

Interestingly, Manchester City skipper Ilkay Gundogan’s contract with the defending champions runs out at the end of the season, and even he has been strongly associated with a move to Catalonia. Get all the updates from the Premier League only on M88 Sports.
