Il portoghese riscattato dal Barcellona per 22 mln di sterline. Ha firmato un contratto di 5 anni
Andrè Gomes è a tutti gli effetti un giocatore dell’Everton. I Toffies, tramite il loro sito ufficiale, hanno annunciato il riscatto del centrocampista portoghese dal Barcellona per 22 milioni di sterline, che ha firmato un contratto per le prossime 5 stagioni sportive. Ecco il comunicato con le dichiarazioni del giocatore.
Andre Gomes has signed for Everton from Barcelona in a £22million deal, with the midfielder agreeing a five-year contract until the end of June 2024.
The 25-year-old Portugal international has committed his future to the Blues following an impressive loan spell at Goodison last season.
“I’m really happy to sign the contract with Everton – it wasn’t hard to decide, it was an easy decision and I’m very happy to have made it,” Gomes told evertontv. “I know the Club made a massive effort to sign me and I’m very happy and thankful to them. I said during the year that I felt part of a family and that is the most important thing to me. Last year was a really good experience for me. I just wanted to feel part of something special and I found it here. It was good for me in that moment and right now, after signing for Everton, it’s even better. I think the ambition here is not only for me, I think it’s for all the players, the fans and the Club. We are all excited for that”. Gomes initially joined Everton on a season-long loan from Barcelona on transfer deadline day in August 2018. After recovering from a hamstring injury, the midfielder made his Blues debut in a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in October 2018 at Goodison Park. Gomes, capped 29 times by Portugal, went on to make a total of 29 appearances, scoring one goal in that time – a fine long-range strike against Wolverhampton Wanderers which finished runner-up in the Club’s Goal of the Season poll.
