Al-Ahli to sign promising Spanish player, Veigar
According to renowned transfer market expert, Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano, Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia is on the verge of signing Gabri Veigar, a highly talented 21-year-old midfielder from Celta Vigo. Romano’s announcement on social media included the firm phrase “HERE WE ARE”, indicating the imminent completion of the transfer.
However, this transfer has received criticism from an unexpected source, legendary Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos. Kroos took to social media, expressing his “embarrassment” towards Veigar’s decision to move to a lesser-known league like the Saudi Arabian one. It appears that Kroos regrets the young player’s choice to prioritize financial gain over the opportunity for fame and development.
Veigar has been closely watched by football fans during this summer transfer window. With his impressive technical abilities, control over the ball, and clinical finishing, he has caught the attention of top European clubs. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City had all expressed interest in acquiring Veigar’s services. Initially, it seemed that Napoli would secure his signature, with Romano predicting the deal on the 18th. However, to the surprise of many, Veigar made the sudden decision to join Al-Ahli, who reportedly offered a more enticing contract.
The footballing world has witnessed a trend this summer, as numerous established European players opt to continue their careers in Saudi Arabia. However, most of these players are past their prime. Veigar’s move is unique as he is still a young player with immense potential. At the age of 21, he has prioritized financial gain over the pursuit of fame at a European club.
Toni Kroos’ regretful reaction to Veigar’s transfer is noteworthy. Despite having no personal connection to the young talent, Kroos expressed remorse for the missed opportunity to witness Veigar’s growth at a top European club, implying his belief in Veigar’s bright future.
