Newcastle United will attempt to steal a march on Real Madrid for Gabri Veiga, who has a release clause worth €40 million.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Gabri Veiga is the subject of interest from Newcastle United. The Magpies are ready to hijack Real Madrid’s move for the 20-year-old midfield prospect. Meanwhile, the Celta Vigo whizkid has a release clause worth €40 million in his contract.

Gabri Veiga has quickly risen to prominence since becoming a regular for Celta Vigo. The Spaniard is a product of the Galician club’s academy and one of the most promising young prospects in his homeland. And he has enjoyed an excellent breakthrough campaign with the Sky Blues this term.

The 20-year-old has been a revelation as an attacking midfielder, scoring many crucial goals. And he has a solid tally of nine goals and four assists in 33 appearances across all competitions. Veiga’s progress has not gone unnoticed either, with Real Madrid and Newcastle United among his prospective suitors.

Real Madrid will look to complete the progression to the next generation once Luka Modric and Toni Kroos call it a day. The ageing midfield stalwarts have been legendary performers for Los Blancos. But they are approaching the end of their glittering careers, compelling Real Madrid to scour the market for a successor. Gabri Veiga has thus emerged as a viable target.

Recent reports have also claimed that the Spanish midfield prospect will prefer to join Real Madrid instead of a Premier League. But the reigning La Liga champions face stiff competition from Newcastle United for the 20-year-old. And the Magpies want to steal a march on Real Madrid for the youngster.

Eddie Howe has overseen a brilliant transformation in Newcastle United’s fortunes in the last 18 months. But the Magpies are not done with their overhaul yet and want to create a formidable midfield unit. And Newcastle United are ready to trigger Veiga’s release worth €40 million.
