SPORT: Gomes set to leave Barca, he won't travel to US tour
- The Portuguese is close to joining either Arsenal or Juventus
- The deal will be made official soon
SPORT understands Andre Gomes is very close to departing Barcelona and won't travel with the first team to the US tour. Blaugrana is expected to fly to North America on July 24th.
Talks over the Portuguese's future have progressed in recent days with Juventus and Arsenal the main contenders for his signature. However, neither of the clubs is willing to match Barca's €20m asking price for the 24-year-old midfielder.
The European giants are willing to offer €18m while the Catalans also want to include performance-related bonuses and percentage of any future transfer.

It remains to be seen if Unai decides to go with Golovin, try to sign Gomes or opt for Bentakur.
