With the winter transfer window hovering just by the corner, Manchester United have registered Andre Gomes under their radar yet again.
Jose Mourinho has been desperately trying to fortify the club by the injection of a worthy midfielder.
It seems to be true that in order to catch up with Manchester City, the Old Trafford outfit must revamp its squad by the inclusion of a creative touch.

The United gaffer has been a long-time admirer of Gomes, which could increase the likelihood of a transfer.
Moreover, it’s almost certain that the player has no future at the Catalan club, posterior to being pushed out of the first team by Paulinho.
The Portuguese midfielder was reportedly on the wishlist of Mourinho in the summer, and has been linked with the Red Devils multiple times in the past. Purportedly, the English Giants are close to agreeing a deal with Barcelona to rope in the talented figure.
According to Spanish Outlet Don Balon, the ex-Chelsea boss believes the 24-year-old is a priority signing, and Jorge Mendes will purportedly push a £31 million deal through.
The former Valencia man earned 37 caps for Portugal, and his talents might also attract other clubs this winter.
However, the massive financial support for Mourinho could thwart away any other offers tabled for the Barca starlet.
Regardless, his prevailing contract at the Camp Nou extends up to June 2021, and furthermore, it’s unclear as to whether the Spanish club is willing to let go of the remarkable figure in January.
