Gabri Veiga has been one of the rising stars in La Liga this season. At the age of just 20, the youngster has racked up eight goals and three assists this term, playing a central role in Celta Vigo’s season so far.

The midfielder’s performances have not gone unnoticed either. According to Foot Mercato, Real Madrid are plotting a summer swoop for Veiga as they look to shore up their options in the creative department.

The Spanish giants are interested in signing Veiga in a mutual deal. However, Celta Vigo will not make it easy for the club, as they are likely to hold out for a figure of around €40 million, which is the release clause amount in his contract.

Real Madrid are not likely to commit anything more than €25 million. However, they are open to including players from RM Castilla, who will act as makeweights in the deal.

Real Madrid’s interest in Veiga comes in the backdrop of uncertainty surrounding the future of Dani Ceballos. The midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the season.

This has accentuated the need for a new playmaker such as Gabr Veiga, whose technical prowess, coupled with his productivity in the final third makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid.

Furthermore, with there being no guarantees about the signing of Jude Bellingham, Veiga is reportedly being viewed as a potential backup.

However, Los Blancos are unwilling to meet the midfielder’s €40 million release clause amount. Instead, they would be open to paying around €25 million and include a RM Castilla player as part of the deal, with the report naming defender Rafa Marin as a possible option.

Negotiations are said to be taking place between Real Madrid and Luis Campos, the director of PSG, who also serves as the transfer advisor for Celta Vigo.

It seems that the interest from the Spanish champions in the young midfielder is serious and only time will tell if it materialises into an offer.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
