Celta Vigo midfielder Gabri Veiga is reportedly keen to join Real Madrid this summer over any other club.

The 20-year-old has been in impressive form for Celta during the 2022-23 campaign, featuring on 28 occasions in all competitions, scoring nine goals and contributing three assists.

Veiga's future is currently the subject of much speculation, with a number of Premier League clubs believed to be keen to secure his signature during this summer's transfer window.

Arsenal and Manchester United have both been credited with an interest in the Spain Under-21s international, while Liverpool are thought to be keeping a close eye on his development.

Celta have Veiga on a contract until the summer of 2026, but there is said to be a €40m (£35.4m) release clause in his deal, which could be activated during the upcoming market.

According to Cadena SER, despite being attracted by the idea of moving to the Premier League, the midfielder wants to move to Real Madrid this summer.

There could, however, be an issue when it comes to the payment of the release clause.

The report claims that Real Madrid are not prepared to pay €40m (£35.4m) upfront, instead wishing to pay €25m (£22.1m) this summer with a further €15m (£12.3m) in add-ons.

Veiga came through the youth system at Celta, making his first-team debut in September 2020, and he has now played 64 times for the Sky Blues, scoring 10 times and contributing one assist.

The youngster's versatility is said to make him an even more attractive proposition for Real Madrid, as he is capable of operating in a number of different positions.

Veiga has played as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder, right-sided attacker and a centre-forward for Celta during the 2022-23 campaign.

Real Madrid could overhaul their squad this summer, with Karim BenzemaMarco AsensioToni KroosDani CeballosLuka ModricNacho and Mariano Diaz all out of contract.

Benzema and Modric are both expected to pen new deals in the near future, but there remains uncertainty surrounding the futures of Asensio, Kroos, Ceballos, Nacho and Mariano.

Real Madrid are expected to be in the market for a new centre-forward this summer, with the club planning for life after Benzema, who has had a number of fitness problems during the current campaign.
