Top Man United transfer target admits he is a huge fan of Jose Mourinho

Andre Gomes admits that he is a keen admirer of new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

Andre Gomes has handed Manchester United a significant boost in their pursuit of the midfielder after he admitted that he is a keen admirer of Jose Mourinho.

The 22-year-old has been touted as one of United’s top transfer targets this summer as Mourinho bids to revamp his squad at Old Trafford ahead of his first season in charge at the club.

United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer after their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League last season.

Gomes, who could be a key player for Portugal at Euro 2016, has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent days.

Now, the player himself has fuelled the speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford by revealing that he is a keen admirer of United boss Mourinho.

Gomes is quoted as saying by The Sun: “Mourinho is a great coach, there is no doubt about that, but for now my future is left to one side.

“I am not at all concerned with what will happen after the European Championship, I look forward to the tournament starting.”
