Man United rocked as Euro giants close in on Mourinho favourite

What a miserable few days for the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern it has been. 

Firstly, they miss out on Renato Sanches before seeing a game called off in one of the most ridiculous fiascos in Premier League history, only to watch their Champions League hopes end.

Now, they could be about to miss out yet another target in the shape of Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes.

The Portuguese midfielder had been touted as a target for the Red Devils, with Jose Mourinho believed to be a big fan as he continues to be linked with the Old Trafford post.

A dynamic box-to-box midfielder, the 23-year old former Benfica star has established himself as one of the best in La Liga over the past few seasons.

Though there is thought to be interested from the Theatre of Dreams, it is claimed Italian champions Juventus are closing in on his signature.

Citing reports in Italy, the Sun suggest that the Old Lady are ready to bring him to Turin as a replacement for the injured Claudio Marchisio.

How big a blow would this be for Manchester United? Is Gomes an essential buy?
