Man United & Barcelona amongst clubs linked with Gabriel Veron

Man United & Barcelona amongst clubs linked with Gabriel Veron

Who is Gabriel Veron?

Gabriel Veron is a product of Brazilian giants Palmeiras’ youth system.

He is just 18 years of age, but has already begun to feature fairly regularly for the club’s senior side.

All told, the attacker has racked up 34 first-team appearances to this point in his fledgling career, across which he has scored 10 and assisted five.

Gabriel is naturally a right-winger, however, he is also more than capable of playing on the left – something he has done on several occasions already this season.

The starlet has also featured heavily for Brazil’s under-17 side, notching 16 appearances and scoring two goals.

Now, in turn, despite his limited experience at the top level, Gabriel is being linked with some of Europe’s heavyweights.

As per a recent report from Spanish outlet Sport, all of Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus are monitoring the youngster.

Should any of these sides indeed hope to sign Gabriel, however, he will likely set them back a sizable sum.

Sport claim that the gifted youngster signed a five-year contract extension with Palmeiras in September of 2020. And included in this deal was a staggering €60m release clause.

It is added that Palmeiras are hopeful of securing a record transfer sum for Gabriel, with their previous best the €32m received from Manchester City for Gabriel Jesus.

So, whilst some of the aforementioned clubs may indeed be interested in Gabriel, does a Man United swoop really make sense?

Yes, the Brazilian is a right-winger, and United do need to strengthen in that area.

But the Red Devils only recently signed Amad Diallo, who cost £37m, and Facundo Pellistri – both of whom are young and operate on the right.
