Man United suffer blow after Juventus close in on £40m striker – report

Andre Gomes is set to snub interest from Man United and join Juventus this summer, according to reports in Italy

Manchester United have suffered a blow after it was reported that Juventus are on the brink of sign Andre Gomes from Valencia, according to reports in Italy.

The Red Devils have endured a tough start to their attempts to do some business ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window in July.

Benfica teenager Renato Sanches opted to move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich last week despite being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

United were thought to be interested in Valencia forward Gomez as a potential alternative after the Portuguese winger scored three times and made three assists in 34 La Liga games.

According to reports in Italy as quoted by 101 Great Goals, Gomes is set to join Serie A champions Juventus in a £40m deal in the summer transfer window as opposed to a move to Old Trafford.
