Guillem Balague confirms Manchester United interest in Andre Gomes

by Ben Topliss

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has confirmed that Manchester United are interested in Valencia’s Andre Gomes but claimed an offer is yet to be made.

Gomes put in a number of top performances despite a difficult 2015/16 campaign for Valencia and he has attracted interested from across Europe.

According to Balague, Valencia have firm offers from Chelsea and Juventus. Man United and Barcelona are also keen on the midfielder but are yet to make a move:

United seem to be building a squad for the future, with the capture of 22-year-old Eric Bailly this summer adding to the likes of Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial and Timothy Fosu-Mensah already at the club, who have all shown promising signs early on in their careers.

Gomes, also 22, fits the profile of an up-and-coming prospect and he would strengthen what has been a problem area for United down the years.

Morgan Schneiderlin, Marouane Fellaini, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick all have their own flaws and Jose Mourinho, a manager known for building his sides on strong midfields, will want to ensure he has the best possible options ahead of the coming season.
