Andre Gomes asks to leave Barcelona

Andre Gomes has asked to leave Barcelona this summer after just two seasons with the club, according to reports in Spain.

The Portugal international joined the Blaugrana in a €55m deal from Valencia in the summer of 2016 but has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular at the Camp Nou.

The 24-year-old has fallen out of favour at the Catalan giants with Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Paulinho, Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho among the preferred options in midfield.

El Mundo Deportivo report he has now asked for a summer transfer with Italian champion Juventus said to be extremely interested in speaking with him regarding a move.

Last month, Gomes gave a revealing and honest interview in which he admitted ‘feeling ashamed’ to leave his house in the Catalan city due to his performance levels.
