One of Celta Vigo's brightest prospects, Spanish midfielder Gabriel Veiga (21) could soon be joining PSG. Thanks to Luis Campos?

Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester City... Gabriel Veiga has been in the sights of all these top European clubs in recent months. It has to be said that the 21-year-old Spanish midfielder has plenty of talent on his hands, and is coming off a fine season on his own at Celta Vigo, with 11 goals and 4 assists in 40 games played. Not bad for a midfielder who can play both as a holding midfielder and one step higher up the pitch.

Gabriel Veiga to undergo medical at the end of the week?

But according to Foot Mercato, PSG could be the ones to win the bid. A medical examination is even expected at the end of the week. In terms of price, PSG are said to have negotiated an amount below the player's €40 million release clause. The case undoubtedly bears the stamp of Luis Campos, who is both PSG's soccer advisor and external advisor to Celta Vigo.

It may also be the work of Pini Zahavi, the famous agent who works a lot with PSG and who recently took over the player's representation. The fact that PSG's future coach is Luis Enrique must also have played in the Parisian club's favor. A former coach of Celta Vigo, the former La Roja coach is well acquainted with the great hopes of Spanish soccer, and Gabriel Veiga is one of them, more than ever.
