OFFICIAL: BARCELONA TO SIGN ANDRE GOMES

Published

on

The midfielder has reportedly penned a five-year deal at the club following an
impressive two-season stint at La Liga rivals Valencia and Euro 2016 campaign with winners Portugal
Barcelona have announced an agreement with Valencia to sign Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes after Valencia turned down a bid of 32 million from Chelsea Fc .
Gomes has spent two seasons in La Liga following his move from Benfica in July 2014.
The 22-year-old played a part as Portugal claimed a fairytale Euro 2016 success with their final win over France.
Reports suggest Barcelona paid €40million for Gomes, who made 30 appearances and scored three goals in the league last season.
A 13-time Portugal international, Gomes was apparently also a target for Barca’s fierce rivals Real Madrid.
He is set to become the latest signing for Luis Enrique in the transfer window, with the head coach having added the likes of Samuel Umtiti, Lucas Digne and Denis Suarez to his squad this off-season.
It presents another significant blow for Madrid, who have seemingly missed out on Paul Pogba.
