Latest reports from Spanish newspaper AS claims that Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes is now keen on leaving the club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Portuguese international has been a huge flop at Barcelona, ever since moving to the club in 2016 from Valencia, often struggling due to lack of game-time. This season, however, the talented midfielder has featured in only 478 minutes of league football for Barcelona, which is below par for a player of his calibre.
But that being said, there won’t be a shortage of potential suitors for the 24-year-old this summer, with a host of top European clubs already vying for his signature.
Here are three possible destinations for the Barca midfielder this summer.
Liverpool could be one of three possible destinations for Andre Gomes.
The Reds, currently third in the Premier League table, are in desperate need of a quality midfielder next season, following the departure of star playmaker Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian superstar moved to FC Barcelona in a big-money move, earlier this year.
Andre Gomes’ stunning technical qualities coupled with his ability to create chances for his team are ideally suited to Liverpool’s attack-oriented gameplay. Therefore, the Merseyside giants definitely need to make a move for the Portuguese international, who can prove to be a smart addition to the team this summer.
Juventus are one of many clubs interested in the services of Andre Gomes.
On the face of it, the Italian giants don’t really have any significant problems in the midfield department, with players like Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentancour steadying the ship in the middle.
But that being said, the addition of Andre Gomes could provide Juventus with an additional option in the midfield department, especially with players like Claudio Marchisio, Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi entering into the final phase of their respective careers.
Andre Gomes can be a huge boost for the Serie A side, where he can definitely thrive alongside some of the best midfielders in European football.
Last but not the least, it’s Manchester United, who make a strong case for being the potential destination for this highly talented Barcelona starlet.
In fact, latest reports claim that the Red Devils are well-alerted to Andre Gomes’ situation at Barcelona and are keen to wrap up his signature this upcoming summer.
Following the retirement of veteran midfielder Michael Carrick, while players like Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind being highly linked with a move elsewhere, Manchester United could run a little short, in the midfield department next season and that’s where Andre Gomes comes into the fray.
The Portuguese international might become successful under the leadership of his compatriot Jose Mourinho. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how the transfer saga of Andre Gomes takes shape in the upcoming summer transfer window.
