The 18-year-old forward, Gabriel Veron has popped up as the next potential signing for the Premier League leaders, Manchester United as per reports.

The Brazilian youngster who plays for the Serie A club, Palmeiras was promoted to the first team at the end of 2019. He has scored 10 goals and assisted 3 since his promotion. A stat like this from an 18-year-old was enough to grab the attention from European giants. Moreover, being a Brazilian has its perks.

Gabriel was also an undisputed starter for the international U-17 side. In the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup, he scored 3 times to help Brazil win the trophy for the 4th time. His performance was rewarded with the Golden Ball award.


Since Gabriel has already established himself as a hot prospect, there are clubs already lining up for him. Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City are said to be in a 4-way battle for him.

A report suggests that the La Liga giants Barcelona are in pole position for the forward. But due to their ongoing presidential election, it is difficult for them to make a transfer decision.

Whereas the Manchester rivals have gone behind the scene in order to jump ahead in the race for Gabriel Veron. They know the difficulty in signing a youngster, especially a Brazilian. So they decided not to create any commotion.

The Citizens will have a negligible advantage over The Red Devils. They had a recent business with the Italian side when they signed Gabriel Jesus in 2017. Manchester City will be hoping that he plays a crucial role in landing Veron.

Manchester United, on the other hand, will be continuing their new recruitment scheme where they are aiming for the future. They have already landed 2 youngsters and the addition of Gabriel Veron will only bolster their attack more.

The advantage the current Premier League leaders, Manchester United has as compared to others, is they have a good recruitment system. They know how to convince youngsters to join them. Also, they have one of the best youth academies.


Gabriel signed a 5-year deal with Palmeiras in 2019 that will keep him at the club till 2025. The teenager is valued around €20 million which is quite a bargain when it comes to talent. But Palmeiras has inserted a massive buyout clause of €60 million.

No matter how talented the player is, with such a price tag, any club will drop out from the race. But thankfully, it is believed that the club will be willing to let go of their starlet if a decent bid around his market value is made.
