Summary: Real Madrid - Barcelona 1:0 (Sport1)
Real Madrid signed quite a few big names for next season, but the new candidate to strengthen the Blancos is a little less known - Gabriel Viega, one of the most prominent young men in La Liga this year.
The 20-year-old Celta Vigo midfielder has a relatively low release clause - 40 million euros - and is also considered a numbers player: this season he scored nine league goals (second only to Iago Aspes in the team) and scored three from the central midfield position, and it is not impossible that he will be part of the future link squad of Real.
"How determined Madrid will be to sign him depends on what happens at the club," AS wrote.
"Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Dani Sabaios are out of contract in the summer. Modric has expressed a desire to stay, the future of the other two is unclear. If one of them does not continue, Viega's candidacy will become even more serious."
Next season together?

But the Blancos are not alone in this race.
Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are already eyeing the midfielder, who has already made one appearance for Spain's youth team.
Newcastle and Atletico Madrid are also in the picture.
The player himself took Fini Zahavi as his agent, and now it remains to be seen whether he will become Real's first Spanish acquisition since Brahim Dias in 2019.
