Manchester United and Chelsea look set to go head to head over the signing of talented midfielder Andre Gomes, but they could face serious competition from the club that have already got their hands on him.

According to the Daily Star, the 21-year-old Portugal international has caught the eye of both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho during his recent stint on loan at Valencia, where he is impressing more than the two Premier League managers.

However, the Blues and Red Devils may struggle to convince him that his future lies at either Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge, as the Spanish club are desperately trying to thrash out a permanent deal with Benfica and install a massive release clause.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea should be confident of overcoming any challenge from Valencia if they decide to make a move for Gomes, as the spending power at the Premier League duo dwarfs that of the Liga club.

There is no mention of what it would cost to land the midfielder on a permanent deal, there are issues around third party ownership and the report claims that this could be a stumbling block for any potential deal.
