Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes could be leaving the Catalans this summer, according to reports.
The 23-year-old Portuguese midfielder, who joined Barcelona from Spanish club Valencia, is said to be surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp and is set to be offloaded, with both Man United and Juventus keen on his services.
Reports claim that Gomes’ agent Jorge Mendes was recently in Barcelona to discuss the future of the Portuguese international.

Gomes played 47 matches for the Catalans last season, and is currently on international duty with Portugal in Russia for the Confederations Cup.
Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for a midfielder to support his current set in the centre of the field and is said to value Gomes as a key figure. The player will attract a fee close to the £30m Barcelona paid for him last summer.
Despite featuring largely for former Barca manager Luis Enrique, Gomes failed to live up to the expectations since his European Championship win with Portugal.
