FIFA rating / FM stats, please. I can't weigh in on whether I think this is a good move or not until I have the relevant information.
FIFA report.

Decent enough rating and potential for a 20 year old.
Overall rating up from two seasons ago, when first introduced to the game, however potential has unfortunately declined.
He may have shrunk by an inch, but has successfully morphed from a grey generic avatar.
FIFA used to have RB as one of his positions, which could have been useful, but has since forgotten how to play there.

Well we do need midfielders who can advance the ball forward. We only really have Ndombele who can do that consistently. Sissoko can carry the ball forward, but less consistent and more random, like a twister barreling towards a town.

Looking forward to seeing what he can do.

For that Gomes, we were wrong. Because he was Brazilian it would have been Go-mez. So you're right.

Andre Gomes is indeed Go-mejsh. There's a little j sound in there but mostly the sshhh at the end.

For example Raul Meireles was not 'muh-rel-ez', like in Spanish it's more like 'muh-relsh'.

Brazilian Portuguese can be a funny language. For example Fred is pronounced 'Fre-jee' and Hulk 'Hoo-kee'.

Neither Portuguese pronounce the R in words starting with R, so Ricardo is 'Hicardo'.

Pretty annoying when your first name is Ross!
Yeah I know the feeling... My real name's Rerpes

If find these match highlights a bit more useful than the compilations that just cut together all the good things.

He seems lively, but still very much a work in progress.

Great to see us invest in more personnel. I hope we've done our homework and he turns out to be a good investment.

Strikes me of an opportunistic signing that has come around after the loss of Sissoko.

I do find it odd that we are happy to spend 50 plus million on a player that wasn't a priority a month ago.

All whilst a player who has been wanted by us, our previous and present manager and would be the obvious replacement for the historically vital Eriksen is likely to go for 60m. Abit weird.
I'm guessing that there are no DMs available right now that Mourinho wants and that Levy is keeping his powder dry for the summer on that one. I expect GF is on pretty low wages as well which BF certainly won't be.

With the Portuguese links tho, I guess I’d still be dreaming for Neves. He’d certainly make sense for our midfield.

Yep. I'm sure that's right.

Am I the only one who thinks the rumoured clause to buy is incredible high for a sub of Benfica?
