Real Madrid and Premier League clubs competing for Celta Vigo's Veiga

The midfielder has been one of the revelations of the season in LaLiga

Gabri Veiga's season at Celta Vigo, as expected, is not going unnoticed. If at the beginning of the season people were wondering who this 20-year-old kid was, now they are asking themselves how much will it cost to get him out of Vigo?

Everything indicates that this summer there will be a bidding war and, according to Diario AS, Real Madrid are very interested in signing him. Madrid see him as the ideal replacement for Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, who in the coming seasons could begin to have less prominence. 

Veiga is a midfielder with a great touch and an eye for goal that has dazzled every fan of Spanish football and has also set off the alarm bells at the continent's big clubs, who do not want to miss the opportunity to sign him.

In fact, he is already Celta's second top scorer with nine goals, only surpassed by Iago Aspas, who has 12 so far. He has also shared three assists. In most of the matches he is substituted, so these numbers are even more spectacular and reflect the impact he has on his side's performances.

€40 million is not an impediment for the Premier League

Some reports suggest that Madrid would try to lower the €40 million release clause Veiga has. According to Cadena SER, one of the options would be to add the Castilla centre-back Rafa Marin to the operation. 

Premier League clubs are also following him closely. Arsenal, Newcastle and the Manchester clubs are the teams with which Veiga has been linked and also the clubs to whom the €40m clause seems more than affordable. 

The player will decide, but he will certainly not be short of suitors. Another option would be to stay at his beloved club for one more season. With a contract until 2026, he could wait to make an important leap in his career.
