Toni Kroos brands Gabri Veiga's transfer to Saudi Arabia as 'embarrassing'

Toni Kroos has furiously hit out at Gabri Veiga's transfer to Saudi Pro League side Al Ahli in a stinging attack.

Clubs in Saudi Arabia have been relentless during the summer, having snapped up some of the best talent in Europe.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the first superstar to leave Europe for the Middle East, with the likes of Karim Benzema, Neymar and N'Golo Kante following suit this summer.

Roberto Firmino, Riyad Mahrez and Jordan Henderson have also signed for Saudi teams, not to mention Ruben Neves and Sadio Mane.

The Saudi Pro League is now set to boast one of the brightest prospects in the shape of 21-year-old Vegia, who starred for Celta Vigo last season.

He made 36 La Liga appearances in the 2022/23 campaign, scoring 11 goals, reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Serie A champions Napoli appeared to be on the verge of securing the services of the Spanish starlet.

But the talented midfielder has snubbed the Premier League and Italy's top flight as he's set to join Al Ahli, who have had a bid accepted by the Spanish outfit.

Fabrizio Romano claims Veiga has decided to sign for Al Ahli and said the youngster was the club's 'secret' top target.

But the transfer has angered Real Madrid's Kroos, who slammed the move, describing it as "embarrassing" in a scathing assessment.
