Celta Vigo central/attacking midfielder Gabriel "Gabri" Veiga Novas - in the midst of a 13-scorer-point-season for La Liga side Celta Vigo - is set to become one of the hottest commodities in the summer transfer market. The 20-year-old Spanish youth international has increased his estimated market worth ten-fold in the current season, rising from €3-million-valued player in September to a €30 million-valued mega-talent in the latest transfermarkt update. 

The youngster recently enlisted the services of footballing super-agent Pini Zahavi, most famous for serving the interests of Robert Lewandowski, in order to cash-in on his cache and secure a blockbuster move this summer. Spanish giants Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are rumored to be interested, as are Premiership sides Liverpool, Man City, and Man United. Spanish sports daily Diaro AS writes that there have also already been exploratory talks held with FC Bayern München. 

Veiga is rumored to have a way out of Galicia already paved for him this summer via a €40 million exit clause in his current contract. Celta Vigo will certainly not be willing to allow him to depart for less than that, but the price-range is well within Bayern's budget. Veiga's current deal with the Spanish top division's 13th-placed side runs through 2026.
