The Portugal midfielder has signed a five-year deal at Goodison Park, for whom he made 29 appearances last season playing on a one year loan deal.

“I’m really happy to sign the contract withEverton, it wasn’t hard to decide, it was an easy decision and I’m very happy to have made it,” Gomes told Everton’s website

“I know the club made a massive effort to sign me and I’m very happy and thankful to them. I said during the year that I felt part of a family and that is the most important thing to me.

“Last year was a really good experience for me. I just wanted to feel part of something special and I found it here. It was good for me in that moment and right now, after signing for Everton, it’s even better.”

The Barca man who proved to be a flop at the Catalan club played for the Premier League side Everton last season and regained his form. He was at the heart of the Everton midfield and impressed both attacking and defending.

F.C Barcelona released an official statement on their site “FC Barcelona and Everton F.C. have come to an agreement for the transfer of the Portuguese footballer André Gomes. The amount agreed to for the transfer is €25m plus add-ons.

FC Barcelona would like to publicly thank André Gomes for his dedication and commitment, and wishes him the best of luck and success in the future.”

Andre Gomes  had his breakthrough  at Valencia in 2016 which earned him a €38 million transfer to F.C Barcelona . He failed to keep the same form at F.C Barcelona where he stayed for two seasons and having been given sufficient playing time he couldn’t show the same performance he did with Valencia C.F. He won 4 trophies with Barca, winning the La Liga once, two Copa del Rey titles, and one Spanish Super Cup.

He showed stellar performances with Everton on his debut season in the premier league. All the big clubs across Europe were rumoured for wanting him, but he signed with the Merseyside club.


Man City beats Everton 3-1, top Premier League

Man City beats Everton 3-1, top Premier League

Manchester, Dec 15: Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus scored twice to help Manchester City defeat Everton 3-1 on Saturday and get the team back on top of the English Premier League.

Defending champion Manchester City secured the home win of the match-day 17 to erase the memory of its first loss this season; 2-0 against Chelsea in the previous round.

Manchester City dominated the beginning of the match held at Etihad stadium, but its players squandered several scoring chances, reports Efe news.

Jesus opened the scoring for Manchester City after 22 minutes into the match with an accurate short-range shot inside the penalty area.

Everton fought to come from behind, but Jesus struck again with a second goal just five minutes into the second half off a header after his teammate Leroy Sane sent a cross from the left side.

Undaunted, Everton tried a comeback as forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin narrowed City’s lead 15 minutes later off a header on a cross sent from the left side.

It was left to Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling to put the game out of reach as he scored the third goal for the Citizens in the 69th minute, putting a header from a cross shot in on the left side to seal the 3-1 win.

After this victory, Man City provisionally leads the Premier League standings with 44 points, two points ahead of second-placed Liverpool, which will host Manchester United Sunday.

Man United move would be 'unique opportunity': Everton

Man United move would be ‘unique opportunity’: Everton

Rio de Janeiro, Nov 19:  Gremio and Brazil international forward Everton said that he would be open to a move to Manchester United amid reports linking him with the English Premier League club.

According to Brazilian news service Globo Esporte, the Red Devils are preparing a 30 million pound (around $39 million) offer to sign the 22-year-old, reports Xinhua news agency.

“There are lots of rumours,” Everton said after scoring in Gremio’s 2-0 victory over Chapecoense in Brazil’s top flight. “I’m playing well and we all know that it’s difficult for Brazilian clubs (to keep players) when English teams come calling. I’ll wait for the season to end and see what is the best for me and for Gremio.”

Everton, who mainly plays as a left winger but can also operate as a No. 10 or second striker, has scored 10 goals in 24 Brazilian Serie A matches this season.

He was a member of the Gremio team that won last year’s Copa Libertadores, South America’s top club competition, and was rewarded for his consistent form by being called up to Brazil’s national side in August.

“You never know what the future holds,” Everton said. “I’m contracted with Gremio but I can’t deny that it would be a unique opportunity to play at a high level in European football,” he added.

Sarri makes history as Chelsea-Everton in goalless draw

Sarri makes history as Chelsea-Everton in goalless draw

London, Nov 12: Chelsea’s Italian coach Maurizio Sarri set a new English Premier League record as the Blues were held to a 0-0 draw against Everton in an English league Matchday 12.

Sarri set a new record for the longest unbeaten start to his maiden Premier League season as Chelsea has yet to lose a game after 12 matches, but the Blues only managed to garner a single point in Sunday’s home duel, reports Efe.

Chelsea on Sunday did manage to create several scoring chances at Stamford Bridge stadium, especially on shots by Spanish striker Alvaro Morata, Brazilian winger Willian and Spanish defender Marcos Alonso.

Everton, meanwhile, preferred to sit back and defend its net, which they successfully did.

Colombian centre back Yerry Mina was included in Everton’s starting lineup for the first time in the competition.

After the break, Sarri refreshed his squad, inserting Spain’s Pedro Rodriguez and Cesc Fabregas, as well as in-form Ross Barkley, but the scoreless deadlock remained unbroken until the final whistle.

Morata was the only player to penetrate the Toffees’ defence and he did score off a pass from countryman Cesar Azpilicueta, but the goal was cancelled as he was ruled offside.

Despite securing a point on Chelsea’s home-ground, Everton also returned home with bad news with Brazilian striker Richarlison having to leave the pitch with a pulled right thigh just two minutes before second-half stoppage time.

The 21-year-old Richarlison’s injury came in the final match before the international break, with the Brazilian national team set to fly to London to play Uruguay and Cameroon in friendlies.

With its fourth tie in the Premier League season, Chelsea sits in the No. 3 spot in the standings with 28 points, while Everton is provisionally in ninth place with 19 points.

I was Ready to Give up Football – Richarlison Reveals Emotional Journey

New Brazil sensation, Richarlison who is rocking with goals at both international and club level revealed his emotional journey to the Brazil team.

Richarlison scored two goals in the friendly match against El Salvador.

Brazil forward, who is now in terrific form was about to quit football after getting rejected by numerous clubs. But his never give up attitude helped him to climb to the top in the end.

With three goals already for Everton in the Premier League, the former Fluminense and Watford player has become an instant favourite. However, he has revealed his start to the football career wasn’t smooth as it looks. Richarlison told AS,

“I haven’t got enough fingers to count the number of clubs who rejected me. I was ready to give up football. But  I lifted my head, and I went to Belo Horizonte with just the money for an outward ticket for the last trial I had, with America MG. If I didn’t make it, I had no money to get home to Espiritu Santo, 600 kilometres away.”

Brazil forward also said he would have regretted if he would have given up.

“I gave my all that morning, and I passed. If I had given up after the first no, I would never have made it where I am today.”

Richarlison double fires Brazil to win over El Salvador

When asked if he dreams of playing for Barcelona or Real Madrid one day, the 21-year old said,

“That way you leave me in a complicated situation… They are two giants, the dream of any player. But I just got to Everton; I’m very happy. And in the end, the next step will depend a lot on what you do here. So I hope to do a lot of good things in Everton, to win something relevant and to give back the confidence of the club and the fans. This is my great motivation right now.”

Everton will face West Ham in their next Premier League game on Sunday.

Everton Didn’t Want Me Anymore, Says Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney has revealed that the professional Liverpool-based football club Everton “made it clear” they wanted him to leave the club before his move to D.C. United, last month. Rooney failed to find consistency in his boyhood club.

Rooney returned to Goodison Park in July 2017 following a trophy-laden 13-year stint at top-notch club Manchester United (MU). He scored 11 goals for the Toffees, finishing 2017-18 as their top scorer.

The 32-year-old Rooney failed to find consistency in an often-struggling side. New manager Marco Silva and director of football Marcel Brands confirmed in June that the former England captain was in talks with MLS club DC.

The forward finally completed the move on June 28. He signed a three-and-a-half-year contract, suggesting at the time that the decision to leave Merseyside was not just down to him.

He has now expanded on the reasons behind his move. Rooney told ESPN: “Obviously at Manchester United that [playing] wasn’t happening as much as I would have liked and I quite easily could have stayed there with two years left on my contract and picked up the wages and been happy with that and that’s it.”

“But I wanted to play, went back to Everton and had a year there, then as I’ve said before, Everton made it clear towards the end of the season that they’d be happy for me to leave,” he asserted.

The former Man Utd forward further added: “For whatever reason, I still don’t know. I felt I was doing okay, I was top goalscorer [despite] playing most of the season from midfield. But that’s football. And that gave me a decision to make, and I made this decision.”

“I said to Everton, ‘Listen, I’m not a kid and if this [leaving the club] is what you want, tell me. If you want me to stay, tell me’ and we talked about it,” he concluded.

Wayne Rooney will play his first MLS match on 14 July (Saturday).


Iceland’s Sigurdsson could miss World Cup due to injury

London, March 15: Iceland and Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson could miss out on his country’s first-ever World Cup appearance as he is set to be out for “six to eight weeks” with a knee injury.

“We’ll continue to assess Gylfi’s progress on a week-to-week basis,” Everton manager Sam Allardyce was quoted as saying by the BBC on Wednesday.

Sigurdsson’s brother, Olafur Mar Sigurdsson, told Icelandic media the player had damaged the joint of his right knee.

Sigurdsson has scored five of his seven goals in his last 17 matches and his injury is a blow to Everton who are hoping to finish the season on a positive note after a disappointing start.


Defender Mangala will give Everton balance: Coach

London, Feb 2: Everton head coach Sam Allardyce on Friday heaped praise on his new loan signing Eliaquim Mangala and said he can provide balance to the side with his playing ability.

The French defender was signed from Manchester City on loan until the end of the ongoing season.

“He is naturally left footed, who will not only be defensively better but also better in both areas. He will give us better balance,” Allardyce said.

“You can see the other night that our strength lay down the right hand side,” he added.
