Barcelona to part ways with Andre Gomes

Portugal international Andre Gomes could be heading for an exit from Barcelona just a year after his switch from Valencia. Real Madrid and Juventus are among the contenders for his signature.

The 23-year-old has largely been deemed a failure with the Catalan giants this season with a section of the club's faithful whistling while he is on the ball.

According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, the midfielder could end his association with Barca in the summer after the club opted to play him on the summer transfer list.

It is added that Gomes' agent Jorge Mendes has already begun negotiations with top European clubs with arch-rivals Real Madrid and their fellow Champions League finalists Juventus holding an interest in the player.

Gomes had been recruited for a combined package of around £60m including add-ons in 2016, and Barcelona are likely to take a major loss to their kitty if they are to offload their asset this summer.

In spite of this, Gomes recently received the backing of outgoing boss Luis Enrique, who believes the midfielder will play a key role in Catalonia for years to come.
