Barcelona confirm €35m deal for Valencia's Andre Gomes
Barcelona have confirmed that they will sign Portugal midfielder Andre Gomes from Valencia for €35 million plus up to €20m in incentives.
Earlier this month, Real Madrid were reported to be considering a €65 million bid for the Portugal international, who was part of his country's Euro 2016-winning squad.
He spent the 2014-15 season on loan at Valencia from Benfica before making the move permanent last summer. Gomes made 78 appearances for Los Che, scoring nine goals.
Gomes won the Portuguese treble -- the league and two domestic cups -- with Benfica in 2013-14, when they were also Europa League runners-up for the second successive season.
He is Barca's fourth signing of the summer, following fellow midfielder Denis Suarez from Villarreal and France defenders Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Digne from Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain respectively.
