Florentino, quick to search for excuses, seems to have found one to justify how Barcelona have taken one of their main targets, just as they did in the cases of Neymar, Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez. Sport EN As Florentino’s stomach still turns at the news. CEST ‘Los Blancos’ were hoping to sign the player and had been negotiating with Valencia. They had prepared an offer of 50 million euros, plus 10 million euros in bonuses, but have seen Barça overtake them and snatch the player away. Now the Madrid media leak that Gomes stopped the conversations with Real Madrid as he did not want to be the second option to Luka Modric, and they remind their readers that the Portuguese midfielder lost his starting place at Euro 2016. So Real Madrid are left without “the total footballer”, as one of the Madrid media outlets called him. 22/07/2016 at 15:00 They have begun a phase of deconstruction of the fantasy that they themselves created. The Real Madrid supremo has slipped information to his friends in the press that his club did not really want Andre Gomes, rather their priority was to give James Rodriguez a second chance. Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, has been left speechless after the quick movement of FC Barcelona in the deal to take Andre Gomes to the Camp Nou.
