Transfer News: Manchester United target Palmeiras winger Gabriel Veron
According to The Mirror, Manchester United are currently considering whether or not to target Palmeiras winger Gabriel Veron in this summer transfer window. The club’s scouts assessed the youngster and were ‘stunned’ by him, prompting them to further monitor his situation.
Veron has attracted interest from several European outfits, including Man United. Palmeiras have changed their stance and are now ready to sell him after the increased attention on his services. The English side got a boost from that and are chasing it right now.
The Brazilian club currently value the Brazil U-20 international at around £10million. The Red Devils are looking to loan him to Palmeiras if they sign him amid stiff competition. Palmeiras are ready to sell Veron in the region of their valuation but it would have to be seen whether Man United would pay that fee or not.
Will Man Utd sign Veron?
The 19-year-old spent quite a bit of time with the first team formed in the previous campaign. Veron looks in line to have a breakthrough season shortly if his performances are up to snuff. With one goal and five assists in 32 appearances in all competitions, he certainly looks on track.
However, the South American’s minutes only stand at 1398 in total, which shows that his production is indeed quite solid. Moreover, he has also shown excellent flexibility to play anywhere in the frontcourts, despite being primarily a right winger in the trade.
The current asking price can be considered quite reasonable for someone who is tipped to become a future superstar. Moreover, his contract will only expire in the summer of 2026, which gives Palmeiras some leeway to demand a high valuation.

However, we have to keep an eye on the competition from other interested parties who are still unknown to this day. As such, it would be best if we discussed this matter internally and reached a conclusion at the earliest.
Maybe our idea of loaning Veron to Palmeiras could give us an edge over other rivals in this pursuit. After all, the South American side can keep him longer, but whether it will play a significant role or not will only be known in due time.
