Man Utd and Newcastle both scouting Gabri Veiga as transfer buyout clause in Celta Vigo midfielder’s deal is revealed
MANCHESTER UNITED and Newcastle are both interested in Celta Vigo star Gabri Veiga, according to reports.
The Spaniard has shone in LaLiga this term, gathering plenty of interest.
Gabri Veiga is attracting interest from the Premier LeagueRex
He is contracted at Celta until 2026, although the Spanish side are desperate to renew his deal.
As is customary in LaLiga, Veiga’s contract possesses a release clause.
It is currently set at £35million, although Celta want to double this sum in a contract extension.
According to the Mirror, United and Newcastle are among a host of Prem teams admiring Veiga.
They could face competition from Germany, however, with Bundesliga clubs also looking at Veiga closely.
The 20-year-old is represented by super-agent Pini Zahavi, the man tasked with handling his future.
Veiga is a product of Celta’s academy.
He has made 23 league appearances this season, bagging eight goals and laying on three assists from an advanced midfield role.

His performances saw him land international recognition in 2022.
In November last year, Veiga earned his Spain Under-21s debut.
He came on as a late sub as La Roja beat Japan 2-0 in Seville.
