Newcastle United are ready to trigger the €40 million release clause to acquire 20-year-old attacking midfielder, Gabri Veiga.

According to AS, Newcastle United are keen on having the services of Gabri Veiga. The Magpies are ready to trigger the €40 million release clause in Veiga’s Celta Vigo contract.

The 20-year-old has been doing wonders on the pitch of late and there is a lot of interest in his services. As a result, Newcastle are not willing to risk losing out on him. They are willing to go all out to land him at the club ahead of next season.

Veiga has been a part of the Celta Vigo setup since his childhood days. The 20-year-old has come up the ranks at the club and has gone from strength to strength of late. He was promoted to the senior team ahead of the ongoing season and has already impressed with his heroics in La Liga.

The Spain Under-21 star has featured in 24 league matches and has 11 goal contributions. Veiga has been on fire in the Spanish top flight and his performances haven’t gone unnoticed.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder’s contract at Celta Vigo runs until the summer of 2026. However, he is likely to leave the club in the summer amidst the interest in his services. There is a €40 million release clause in his contract and clubs are willing to pay that in order to have him in their ranks.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United are keen on having the Celta Vigo midfielder in their ranks. The Magpies are looking to build a team of young players with high potential. They have done great transfer business over the past few windows and will enter the summer window in order to further strengthen their squad.

Eddie Howe’s team are looking for a creative force in the midfield. And, they believe the Spanish Under-21 star could be a great fit for the club. The Magpies are willing to offer the 20-year-old a long-term contract with more than €5 million a season in wages.

They are not just offering him the money but also have a great project at hand as they look to challenge for major titles in the near future. However, it won’t be easy for Newcastle to land Veiga given the amount of interest in his services from big clubs across Europe.

Even Premier League clubs Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in the 20-year-old. Both teams have done well in the ongoing season. But, they will be looking to enter the market in the summer for further reinforcements.

Mikel Arteta would love to have another attacking midfielder in his ranks. The Spanish boss is keen on having Veiga at his disposal. Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag feels the need to sign a few midfielders in the upcoming transfer window in order to take the next step and push for the Premier League title next season.
