Manchester United Are Keen To Sign Out Of Favour Barcelona Midfielder
Manchester United are set to make a move for Barcelona’s out of favour midfielder Andre Gomes this summer, according to reports in Spain.
The Portuguese midfielder had moved to Barcelona only last summer but has failed to make an impact at Camp Nou in his debut season. He had started 17 La Liga matches for Barcelona last season but managed only three goals and one assist.
The 23-year old was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United before moving to Barca last summer but Spanish newspaper AS reports the Premier League giants are once again ready to make a move.
Despite playing in central midfield, the Portuguese international had failed to live up to the expectations at Camp Nou as he managed only 3 goals and 3 assists in his 47 appearances for the club across all competitions.
However, Italian champions Juventus are also willing to make a bid for the midfielder as the club are yet again in the market to strengthen their squad. Gomes is considered as one of the first players who could be shown an exit at Barca this summer with the club keen to sign more quality players.
The Blaugrana are set to spend big this summer as the team is currently undergoing transition with a new manager for next season. The club are eyeing Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti to be their marquee signing in central midfield and that would mean Gomes would be leaving the club.
Gomes, who is currently with Portugal national team for Confederations Cup in Russia, will be keen to know the plans of new manager Ernesto Valverde before making a move but a move to Premier League will be very intimidating.
Manchester United are considered favourites in signing him as Jose Mourinho shares the same agent, Jorge Mendes and the midfielder would be a quality addition to Red Devils’ midfield. If he could manage to replicate the performances that he produced for Valencia last season, he might be one of the best deals made by Jose Mourinho.
