Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez linked to Barcelona

Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez posted a photo of himself in Barcelona over the weekend, fuelling speculation he could make a move to the Camp Nou.

Reports in the Spanish press say the in-form forward is on the Blaugrana shortlist as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan striker is said to have a release clause of €50m at Balaidos and netted in Friday night’s 4-2 loss at Rayo Vallecano.

El Mundo Deportivo outline how he posted a photo of the Catalan capital’s Sagrada Familia on his Instagram account, leading to rumours of a possible move.

Diario AS previously reported the target-man ‘is on the list of possible candidates’ to replace Suarez, who turns 32 later this month, and late last year he was also linked with replacing Diego Costa at Atletico Madrid.

Gomez has hit 26 La Liga goals in 50 starts since joining from Defensor Sporting in 2017.
