The boss of the Etihad, Pep Guardiola, wants to strengthen his middle. This is partly brought on by Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan’s uncertain summer prospects for City.
Additionally, Celta president Carlos Mourino acknowledges that keeping Veiga will be challenging and costly.
According to reports, at least four Premier League teams are very interested. Here is all you need to know about the Celta Vigo player.
Who is Gabri Veiga?
On May 27, 2002, Gabriel “Gabri” Veiga Novas, a Spanish professional footballer for La Liga’s Celta Vigo, was born and is currently 20 years old.
The 20-year-old, who began the 2022–23 season with the club’s “B” team, has a bit of a breakout season in LaLiga.
Veiga scored twice and assisted on Haris Seferovic’s initial goal during Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Real Valladolid at home.
The Spain Under-21 international’s season total now sits at eight goals and three assists across his 22 LaLiga games after his game-winning effort.
Veiga’s deal at Celta is set to end in June 2026, but the LaLiga side is apparently aware that keeping one of their best players may be challenging during the upcoming summer transfer window.
His main position is the right-sided “8” in a 5-3-2 or 4-4-2 formation. Veiga sporadically began as a 6 with a partner when Coudet set up his side in a 4-4-2 formation.
Veiga has a lot of room to develop because she is still young. So it makes sense why he has already caught the eye of a few of Spain’s elite teams.
It is important to note that the young players’ performances are all the more impressive given that Celta Vigo has not been a particularly strong team this season.
