In fact, the Red Devils have been among many European teams to have sent their scouts to check the development of the Uruguayan midfielder. However, any club who are going to try and sign him have been made aware that Veiga will not be available for a cheap fee.

Moretto also states that there is a release clause of around £35.5 million in the 20-year-old midfielder’s deal after he signed a new contract with Celta last year. The La Liga side have never received that kind of a fee for any player sale in their history and have decided that they will not sell Veiga for anything less than his release clause, it is also added.

Who Is Veiga?

Veiga has been one of the best young players in La Liga this season and was excellent in February for Celta, scoring four goals and providing an assist in just four appearances. As a result, the 20-year-old was named the ‘La Liga Player of the Month’ for February, beating the likes of Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong and Real Madrid youngster Eduardo Camavinga.

The Uruguayan midfielder has scored eight goals and provided three assists in just 22 league appearances for Celta this season, being extremely prolific in La Liga. A natural attacking midfielder, the youngster can also play in central midfield and as a winger if needed.
