Man Utd boost! Red Devils lead the pursuit for Valencia star and Mendes client

first_imgManchester United have been given a boost in their pursuit of Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes after hearing his agent, Jorge Mendes, is reluctant to do a deal with Juventus.Juve have reportedly tabled a £23m offer for the Portuguese international and have scheduled to meet Mendes before the end of the season.However, Mendes would prefer to broker a deal with United, having maintained a strong relationship with the club as a result of numerous transfer deals involving his clients.According to Sky Italia, Mendes is sceptical about dealing with Italian clubs although he could be forced into meeting directors from Juve if Valencia accept their offer.United, however, remain in pole position to land Gomes, particularly if the player’s compatriot Jose Mourinho – who is also represented by Mendes – takes over at Old Trafford in the summer. 1 Andre Gomes: The 22-year-old has netted four goals in 38 appearances this term last_img read more
