Andre Gomes has been walking a very fine line since he first arrived for big money from Valencia.
The Portuguese midfielder had a horrid time last season with his poor performances turning the fans against him. Former coach Luis Enrique was a staunch supporter of the midfielder and made it a point to shield Gomes from criticism. With Ernesto Valverde at the helm, however, things could be looking down for Gomes. With the rise of Carles Aleña and Sergi Samper alongside a motivated Sergi Roberto, Barcelona’s midfield looks packed.
According to reports from Marca, Barcelona had hoped to clear out some space in their crowded midfield by selling former Atletico Madrid star, Arda Turan. Despite being a high profile name, the Turk has failed to garner interest from big teams which has the club contemplating whether funds could be raised from the sale of Andre Gomes.
Gomes has not returned from his holidays yet which means he has lost his chance to impress the new coach in the preseason.
Whether the move will materialise or not is unclear at the moment but if the club is looking to raise funds then the fans should prepare themselves for some big names this summer.
