Andre Gomes makes request for Barcelona to sell him

After two years of struggling to hold down a regular place in Barcelona’s midfield, Andre Gomes has requested the club sell him this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The 24-year-old has suitors in the Premier League, with multiple English outlets reporting the former Valencia man is of interest to Manchester United, and AC Milan are also reportedly exploring bringing Gomes to Italy.

The Catalan publication states that the Portuguese international is just the biggest name amid a handful of players who could move on from the Camp Nou this summer.

Wing-back Aleix Vidal is expected to be sold, recently arrived centre-back Yerry Mina is a candidate for a loan spell, and the club would be willing to part with both Denis Suarez and Paco Alcacer, though neither is expected to leave; Denis is determined to earn his place with the Blaugrana, while Alcacer is similarly uninterested in leaving — and also has a shortage of suitors at present.
