Man Utd agree £31million deal for Barcelona midfielder - report

     According to reports in England this afternoon, Premier League giants Manchester United are on the verge of securing a deal for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes. Gomes, a 24-year-old Portuguese international, arrived at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2016 for a fee of 35 million Euro, plus a further 20 million in potential add-ons.

In signing the Valencia star, the Blaugrana beat out competition from the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.

However, Gomes failed to properly settle in Catalonia last season, starting just 17 matches in La Liga and managing just 3 goals across all competitions.

As a result, the man labelled by many in Portugal as the possible heir to Xavi at Barcelona was heavily linked with a move away from the La Liga giants with just a solitary campaign under his belt.

Unsurprisingly, Gomes’ lack of time on the pitch this season has led to rumours that he could yet depart the Camp Nou in January, with reports in England this afternoon suggesting that a deal to move on could already be in the pipeline.

The club rumoured to be close to agreeing a deal for Gomes are Manchester United, who were heavily linked with a move for the Portuguese midfielder during the summer.
