No one expected it, possibly the most unexpected news on this transfer market. As Fabrizio Romano reports, Gabri Veiga will be a new player for Al Ahli, one of the most coveted ‘pearls’ on the entire European sceneand that it would have sounded even for Barça or Madrid.
Everything indicated that Naples had completed its incorporation, and it so happens that last Friday the Italians reached an agreement with Celta for a price of 30 million euros. Days later, it was said that problems had arisen during the operationa fact that made it impossible for the midfielder to leave the Vigo club.
Now the situation has turned 180 degrees. Saudi Arabia’s ambitions seem to know no bounds Namely, they’re taking a 21-year-old boy who was destined to shine in Europe the next few years. Ultimately it will not be so, and will join the Saudi Pro League in the next few days.
