Manchester United: Red Devils linked with Gabri Veiga signing

Manchester United: Red Devils linked with Gabri Veiga signing - Manchester United News

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing up a move for Celta Vigo youngster Gabri Veiga but Arsenal are providing competition for his signature.

The Lowdown: Veiga shining for Celta Vigo

The Spaniard has become an important figure for the La Liga side this season, making 21 league appearances and scoring an impressive six goals from the middle of the park.

Veiga is contracted at Celta Vigo until the summer of 2026 but it could be that a move elsewhere materialises once the current campaign reaches its conclusion.

This is where United come into play, as Erik ten Hag looks at potential summer additions.

The Latest: United linked with move

According to AS [via Sport Witness], United are ‘on the lookout’ regarding Veiga, with the same applying to fellow Premier League rivals Arsenal.

His performances for his current club are ‘not going unnoticed’ – he is described as Celta’s ‘main asset’ in the report – and the Red Devils ‘have already monitored him’.

The Verdict: One for the future

Veiga is clearly an exciting prospect, having already won one cap for Spain’s Under-21s and madeĀ 40 appearances for Celta, despite being so young at 20-years-old.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United

MUFC fans, do you remember what year Cristiano Ronaldo signed the first time?

He is someone who could be viewed as a long-term purchase in United’s midfield, with the likes of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen turning 31 this year and needing to be replaced at some point in the coming years.

Veiga could provide both technical quality and strong off-the-ball work, registering two assists and averaging 1.2 tackles per game in the league this season, and ensure Ten Hag builds for the future.
