LIVEPOOL v MAN UNITED FOR GOMES?
Well, them and probably about 17 other clubs across Europe, but the Daily Mirror claims that Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes is a ‘Manchester Uni
ted target’ and that ‘his desire to leave Barcelona could spark more interest, including from Liverpool’. Well it could.
So why does Andre Gomes want to leave Barcelona? Well, because he has started only four La Liga games this season and, at 24, he would quite like to play some football now please.
BERNARD FOR LIVERPOOL?
Sticking with the Daily Mirror and they claim that ‘Liverpool have taken a step towards signing Brazilian playmaker Bernard after Inter reportedly withdrew from the race to sign him’. In case you were wondering, Bernard plays for Shakhtar Donetsk but is out of contract this summer. Inter apparently baulked at his wage demands, though Besiktas have also been strongly linked.
Bernard has ten goals in all competitions this season, including one in the Champions League against Manchester City.
Bernard at Shakhtar reminds me of Gervinho a lot, in style. He is not "silky", but he gets the ball to the by-line time and again.

He doesn’t sound like a playmaker.
