Andre Gomes believes he made the best decision in accepting Barcelona’s offer as he completes his move from Valencia.
The Portugal midfielder was strongly linked with Real Madrid before the operation collapsed and La Blaugrana swept in, and he will be confirmed a Barca player on Wednesday once the formalities are completed.
“I’m happy to come to this great team and I hope to enjoy great moments at Barca. I’m happy and I think it was the best decision. I hope to learn and grow every day. I will give my best every day and help however I’m needed. I will try to improve as a player,” Gomes said, AS reports.
“Above all, I’m a player who works and I’m always looking to help everyone. Winning everything possible is the goal because that is Barca’s mentality. I hope to win all the trophies.”
AS notes Barca will pay €35m up front, as much as €20m more in bonuses and €15m if Gomes wins the Ballon d’Or. He will be presented on Wednesday.
