Toni Kroos slams Gabri Veiga as 'EMBARRASSING' after he snubs Man Utd and Chelsea for 'secret' Saudi transfer | The Sun

TONI KROOS has labelled Gabri Veiga's impending move to the Saudi Pro League as "embarrassing".

The Celta Vigo ace is set to quit LaLiga for Al-Ahli.

Veiga, 21, had been courted by the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

While just last week he had appeared to be on the verge of moving to Italian champions Napoli.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, however, Veiga has decided to join Al-Ahli.

He adds that the attacking midfielder was Al-Ahli's "secret" top target.

While the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez have moved to Saudi Arabia in their 30s, Veiga will makes the switch aged just 21, much to Kroos' ire.

On an Instagram post from Romano about the transfer, Kroos commented: "Embarrassing."

And plenty of fans across the world are also gutted about Veiga's decision.

One tweeted: "The beautiful game is f***ing RUINED… Saudi Pro League is ruining it.

"Signing 30yrs and above is fair enough as they are in their last few years as players.

"But when Saudi are signing very young talents like Gabri Veiga who Arsenal and other top clubs want is just ridiculous… he's 21 FOR F*** SAKE!

"In short, this is what we call "MONEY WASHING""

A second fumed: "I hate this game."

While a third claimed: "Wasted talent."

Another added: "football is so finished."

Veiga emerged as one of LaLiga's brightest talents last season, becoming a regular for Spain's Under-21 side.

He bagged 11 goals in 36 LaLiga appearances, also laying on four assists.

The rising star came off the bench in Celta's opening game of this season, but was an unused sub against Real Sociedad last weekend.
