Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern believe the first signing under Jose Mourinho could be imminent, after being alerted to reports that suggest a bid has been lodged.
Italian website Alfredo Pedula claim Manchester United have made a move for long-term target Andre Gomes, by submitting a bid for the 22-year-old to La Liga giants Valencia.
The young midfielder is rated as one of the best talents outside of La Liga’s top-three and Manchester United have long held interest in the player’s services, with new manager Jose Mourinho sanctioning a move as he looks to bolster his midfield.
United’s bid for Andre Gomes is said to be an initial £35.2m up front, with a further £11.75m being paid in bonuses- making the overall fee worth in excess of £46m.
The Portuguese international, who shares the same agent with United boss Jose Mourinho, is a signing that our landlord believes will thrive at Old Trafford and he expects this move to go ahead imminently.
