Barcelona Shoots Down Juventus’ André Gomes Bid


Juventus’ hope to land André Gomes on loan has been rejected from Barcelona, according to a report from Marca.

The Bianconeri made two offers for the 24-year-old Portuguese player to the Catalan club, the first one involved a straight loan move to Turin and that was refused by Barça.

Another offer that Juventus proposed involved a loan move to Turin with an option to buy, with the value of the deal depending on certain performance variables. Barcelona also said no to that offer.

The Blaugrana are rebuffing any and all loan offers, as the club have made it clear that they are looking for a permanent transfer for Gomes.

Reports say that Barça are looking for €45 million for the midfielder, which is €10 million less than they originally paid when he came over from Valencia.

Since coming over to the Camp Nou last season, Gomes hasn’t had quite the payoff that the club was expecting.

Although he did appear in 47 total games for Barça the past year, that hasn’t saved the young Portuguese star from ending up on the chopping block.

With Gomes’ future still in doubt, and with him yet to make an appearance this season, it will be interesting to see if he will stick around at Barcelona much longer.
