Man Utd Keen On Barca Star?
Manchester United Keen On FC Barcelona Star?
Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified an FC Barcelona star as his next target to strengthen his Manchester United squad.
The Portuguese is apparently still looking for a central midfielder, a winger and a new forward, having already secured the services of centre back Victor Lindelof.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Mourinho has identified Barca's Andre Gomes as his next target, and has already sent his agent Jorge Mendes to Spain.
The report claimed that Mendes has enquired about Gomes' availability, but his approach was rejected by the Catalan giants' board and new coach Ernesto Valverde.
United are said to have tabled a €35 million (R508 million) offer for the midfielder, but the message they received was that the Portuguese is not for sale.
Valverde reportedly wants to keep Gomes, despite the player failing to live up to expectations in his first season at the Camp Nou.
Barcelona want to strengthen their midfield and apparently have their sights on Marco Verratti, but the report suggested that even if the Paris Saint-Germain star signs for the Catalan club, Gomes' departure will still not be considered.
