Real Madrid will make a decision about their interest in Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes over the next few days, reports Marca.
Gomes, 22, has emerged as Madrid’s first-choice option to bolster their midfield options ahead of the start of the new season.
Madrid and Valencia have not yet started negotiations, but the European champions are optimistic because they know the player would be open to a move to the Bernabeu. In addition, Madrid reportedly believe Gomes could play alongside and complement Paul Pogba, who is another player on their shortlist.
Valencia have officially stated that Gomes is not for sale, but Marca reports that they are resigned to securing the best price possible for him as they aware it will be difficult to keep hold of him. In addition, Valencia are in a delicate financial situation and they would look for a fee of around €65m for the Portugal international.
Juventus, who had a €40m offer for Gomes rejected a few weeks ago, are also interested in the midfielder, as are both PSG and Barcelona, while we recently broke the story that Chelsea have had a bid for the player rejected by Los Che.
