André Gomes has become Barça's fourth signing this summer. The midfielder, winner of the European Championships with Portugal, was a player equally desired by Barça and Madrid, and the Blaugranas finally won the bid.

According to the journal Sport, there has been a key factor to André Gomes choosing the Blaugranas: playing alongside Messi and Iniesta. Like his entourage has confirmed, he admires the game of those two players, and it was one of the things that made him decide to go for the Catalan offer.

Also, André Gomes admires the possession game of Luis Enrique's team, and he thinks he will fit better in this team than in Real Madrid, where possession isn't as important.
