Andre Gomes denies transfer contact

Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes has denied any contact with Chelsea amid reported interest from Jose Mourinho's side and Manchester United.

As reported by Superdeporte in Spain, the talented midfielder played down speculation he could be about to leave the Mestalla this summer, insisting he's happy at Valencia.

The quotes come off the back of a Daily Mirror report last month that suggested that Chelsea were watching the 21-year-old Portuguese star with a view to submitting an offer at the end of the season.

In response to such reports, Gomes said this week: "I'm not really concerned with what might happen, but I am convinced that I will stay happy and I'm very happy.

"I think about next season and the matches that remain to complete [this season]. I am not aware of anything about Chelsea, nor is my agent."

The Portugal international joined Valencia from Benfica last year and has established himself as an important part of a talented team in La Liga.

The fact that his agent is Jorge Mendes means that links with Chelsea and Manchester United were basically inevitable, but it would be strange to see Jose Mourinho invest more money in central midfield with Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic the entrenched starters.

As for Manchester United though, that makes more sense. However, a sticking point over any transfer could be his asking price.

Chelsea reportedly value the player at around €35m, but with the Blues and Manchester United interested, Valencia think they can get as much as €50m for him.

A bidding war remains unlikely, and with Gomes keen to stay in Spain it looks like this transfer is one that won't be happening this summer.

What do you think - is Gomes worth the money?
