Manuel Veth is the owner and Editor in Chief of the Futbolgrad Network. He is an area manager for Transfermarkt and also works as a freelance journalist for the Bundesliga and Pro Soccer USA. In other words, he is a very well connected man within the world of football transfers. This is of particular interest to Celtic supporters because today, Manuel has indicated that Celtic are watching Ryan Gauld with a view to a potential transfer.
More on Ryan Gauld to #VWFC. Several clubs, incuding #Sporting are interested in Farense’s playmaker. Another club watching him is #Celtic. That would explain Vancouver’s substantial bid for the player. https://t.co/E9umBEefPA

Gauld burst onto the scene at Dundee United, before moving to Sporting Lisbon as a teenager. The move to Portugal’s capital didn’t quite work out, but he has since rediscovered himself as a playmaker at fellow Portuguese club Farense.
A number of clubs are tracking the player, whilst Vancouver have already issued a substantial bid for his services. However, Celtic’s reported interest clearly comes from a solid source, so there could be some mileage to the transfer connection. It remains to be seen whether the Hoops act on what they’ve seen.
