Portugal star Andre Gomes continues to be linked with a move to Manchester United - and his latest comments suggest he might be tempted to link up with new Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho.

Valencia star Gomes is set to play for Portugal at Euro 2016 this summer and while he insists his focus is on national team duty for now, he did offer up these views on his links with United.

“Mourinho is a great coach, there is no doubt about that, but for now my future is left to one side," he stated.

Mourinho is believed to be a big admirer of Gomes, although he did state last week that he didn't expect to sign any Portuguese players following his move to United.

It remains to be seen whether that stance will change if Gomes lights up the Euro 2016 finals, with his price tag set to soar if he makes his mark in France this summer.

Meanwhile, United fans will be waiting to discover if Zlatan Ibrahmovic's move to Old Trafford will be confirmed in the next 24 hours, after the Sweden striker confirmed he had a big announcement to make on June 7th, which is this Tuesday.
