In an unexpected turn of events in the transfer market, Spanish football’s young hopeful Gabri Veiga is on the verge of an exciting turning point in his career. His fate appeared to be sealed in Napoli, but according to respected journalist Fabrizio Romano, the talented Galician player is poised to embark on a new adventure in the Saudi Pro League at Al Ahli.
Last Friday, news from Italy and Celta Vigo headquarters suggested that Veiga was ready to join Napoli in a juicy transfer valued at €30m with a possible additional €6m. Although that amount was below the 40 million set in his termination clause, it appeared to mark the definitive conclusion of his stint with the Galician club.
