Barcelona sanction Andre Gomes loan to Everton

Barcelona sanction Andre Gomes loan to Everton

Gomes joined Barcelona from Valencia in 2016 for (£31.46) €35m but has struggled to nail down a starting place at the Nou Camp.

Everton beat a host of Premier League and European clubs to the signing of Bernard with the Brazilian worldwide becoming Marco Silva's fourth signing of the summer after Richarlison, Digne and Virginia.

Manchester United had expected to sign Mina after submitting a fresh £35million bid for the Colombia defender earlier this week.

Mina and Gomes both passed medicals in Barcelona on Thursday after Everton officials flew to the Catalan city to finalise the deals.

Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League side since the summer window was introduced in 2003 to not make a single signing.

"I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me", the midfielder said.

Barca have inserted a buy-back option for the Colombian global, who caught the eye after a series of impressive performances at the Russia World Cup.

Bernard burst onto the scene at the 2014 World Cup for Brazil, but his club career led him away from the global scene. The two player will team up again with another ex-blaugrana, Lucas Digne, who made the move to the English club at the beginning of August.

The 25-year-old who has 14 caps for Brazil, was available as a free agent after refusing a contract renewal at Shakhtar Donetsk when his contract expired at the end of last season.
