Napoli has reached an agreement with Celta Vigo for the transfer of Gabri Veiga, a highly talented midfielder. The Italian club has reportedly closed the deal for approximately 35 million euros, including various add-ons and incentives. This development comes after intense negotiations between the two clubs, with Napoli eager to secure Veiga’s services.
As previously reported by AS, Celta Vigo agreed to accept a sum lower than Veiga’s release clause, in order to expedite the transfer process and provide themselves with ample time to reinvest the funds received from Napoli. This strategic move demonstrates the club’s commitment to strengthening their squad and pursuing other potential signings.
While the agreement with Celta Vigo has been finalized, Napoli must now focus on securing a contract with Veiga himself. Although the details of the proposed terms are yet to be finalized, there is a great deal of optimism emanating from the southern Italian city. It is believed that Veiga will be offered a reasonable salary, estimated to be around two million euros net, which would be financially viable for Napoli. Additionally, the player may benefit from the tax advantages provided by the Italian “Decreto Crescita” and the “Ley Beckham.”
Napoli’s president, De Laurentiis, has been meticulously working towards acquiring a player who perfectly fits the club’s long-term vision. With Veiga’s exceptional talent and at just 21 years old, he possesses the potential to flourish under the guidance of Napoli’s coaching staff. The Italian champions have shown great faith in Veiga, despite the continued presence of Piotr Zielinski, who rejected a move to Saudi Arabia and is currently negotiating a contract extension. Napoli would have netted 35 million euros from Zielinski’s sale, which coincidentally matches the amount they are willing to pay for Veiga. However, acquiring the Galician midfielder was deemed a priority, independent of any other potential transfers. Now, Napoli stands on the verge of securing Veiga’s signature, a significant step forward in their pursuit of a successful future.
The addition of Gabri Veiga to Napoli’s roster promises to inject a fresh wave of talent and youthful exuberance into the team. With his remarkable abilities, Veiga has the potential to make a lasting impact in the demanding Serie A. Napoli’s decision to invest in Veiga reflects their ambition to remain at the forefront of Italian football and compete for major honors in the seasons to come.
