The 28-year-old footballer Raphael Veiga recently opened up about his desire to play in Europe, and he specifically mentioned Manchester City as one of his preferred clubs. Veiga, speaking to AS, expressed his interest in playing in Europe and named several top European clubs, including Barcelona, Madrid, City, Arsenal, and Manchester United.

Veiga has had an impressive season on the field, contributing to 36 goals with 18 goals and 18 assists, according to AS. This striking performance has undoubtedly caught the attention of European clubs, despite approaching his 29th birthday in June. His Brazilian counterpart Savio is on the verge of joining Manchester City, and while it might be a little late for Veiga, his exceptional season has certainly put him in the spotlight for European sides.

In addition to talking about European clubs, Veiga mentioned that Kevin De Bruyne is his favorite player. He spoke highly of the Belgian, expressing his admiration for De Bruyne as a fellow player in the same position and stating that he pays special attention to his game.

Following his comments, some may see Veiga’s remarks as a pitch to attract the attention of clubs like Manchester City, particularly given his praise for De Bruyne. It’s uncertain whether Veiga will secure a move to the Etihad Stadium, but there is no denying that his outstanding performance this season has made him a strong contender for a big transfer.

For now, the Brazilian’s desire to play in Europe, along with his recent accomplishments on the field, have certainly made him a player to watch in the upcoming transfer windows. Whether he will join a club like Manchester City is yet to be seen, but Veiga’s aspirations and his impressive record this season have made him a player of interest for European sides.
