Man United ponder £50m bid for La Liga midfielder – report

Manchester United could have to pay as much as £50m to land Andre Gomes this summer, say reports

Manchester United have been told that they will have to pay as much as £50m to sign Andre Gomes from Valencia this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are widely expected to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as they prepare for their first season under new manager Jose Mourinho.

Gomes has long been linked with a transfer to Old Trafford, but now the Daily Express is reporting that Valencia would only be tempted into selling the player should a big-money bid arrive this summer.

The same story says that Mourinho is believed to be a keen admirer of the 22-year-old Portugal international.

Gomes has the same agent as Mourinho and Jorge Mendes is reportedly confident that he can broker a deal.
