Celtic Vigo attacking midfielder Gabri Veiga has a €40m (£35m) release clause, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle have all been linked with the Spanish Under 21 international in recent days but, while Romano confirms that “top clubs” are interested in the player, Celta won’t let him leave for below the current buyout fee:
There’s €40m release clause included in the contract of Spanish young star Gabri Veiga. Celta want to keep him — no plan to let him leave for less than the clause ⭐️🇪🇸 #LaLiga

Reports had suggested that Celta may be willing to sell Veiga for around €30m (£26.5m) but it seems those claims were wide of the mark.
As Romano mentions, the 20-year-old has been in outstanding form this campaign, so it is not a surprise that the likes of the Gunners are keeping close tabs on his development.
Whether Mikel Arteta’s side would be willing to pay the release clause in full, though, is another matter. With Martin Odegaard and Fabio Vieira already in the first-team squad, Arsenal are pretty well stocked in terms of no.10s.
Ahead of Arsenal’s game against Bournemouth this weekend, why not try out the Single Game Survivor from National World Gaming and have a chance to win a share of a cash prize?
You can make predictions about the match (e.g who scores first, who wins the race to three corners etc) and if you guess correctly, you survive.
The great twist? You get two lives to play so even if you get one of your predictions wrong, you can still win a share of the money.
Even if you have just one of your lives left at half-time, you will receive some cash, and if you make it to full-time, you get to share the prize pot with your fellow winners.
It’s a fun way to test your football knowledge with fellow fans, watch in real-time to see if your predictions are correct, and perhaps win some money!
