Reports: Manchester United Keep Close Eye On Out-Of-Favour FC Barcelona Star
Jose Mourinho's Manchester United are reportedly keeping a close eye on a player who seems to be out of favour at FC Barcelona.
According to Sport English, the Red Devils are monitoring Andre Gomes' situation at the Camp Nou.
The former Valencia star has apparently fallen down the pecking order at the club after a poor 2016/17 campaign with the Blaugrana.
Mourinho is said to be a keen admirer of his fellow countryman, and feels he could do a job for him should he be available.
Gomes is currently competing with Ivan Rakitic, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Denis Suarez, Sergi Roberto, Arda Turan and Rafinha for a place in Barca's midfield.
The Catalan giants were apparently looking to offload Turan in this window, but with little interested suitors, they may consider letting the Portugal international go instead.
Mourinho signed midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea earlier this week, so it seems unlikely United will splash big on Gomes as well.
The 24-year-old has made 47 appearances for the Blaugrana since joining the club at the beginning of last season, scoring three goals and assisting a further three strikes.
