Andre Gomes has called his future at Valencia a "mystery", amid new reports linking him with a move to either Manchester United or Juventus. The Portugal international has said his current focus is on the European Championship, but refused to rule out leaving Mestalla in the upcoming mercato.

The 22-year-old creative midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford since his early days at Benfica. Reports in Spain during the summer of 2014 suggested Gomes was the club's first choice to replace Paul Scholes. However, they eventually signed Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao due to the difficulties in obtaining the Portuguese starlet, who at the time belonged to a private investment group.

Valencia secured the deal partly due to the positive relationship between his agent Jorge Mendes and the club's owner, Peter Lim. Gomes has since developed into one of Los Che's signature talents.

Reports in Spain have now suggested Gomes is back on the radar of some of Europe's marquee teams, including Manchester United again and Juventus.

The Daily Mirror reported in March that United had sent scouts to watch both Gomes and Monaco star Bernardo Silva ahead of a summer move for their services.

Super Deporte suggested earlier this month that the Red Devils were ready to step up their pursuit for Gomes, especially after Bayern Munich beat them in the battle for his compatriot Renato Sanches. The Spanish publication claimed Valencia would demand at least €65m (£49.8m, $72.7m) to part ways with the player, adding that a deal would be more likely should Jose Mourinho finally take over at the club, as he is now expected to do following the dismissal of Louis van Gaal.

Gomes, who shares his agent Mendes with Mourinho, has done little to dampen those rumours, admitting to national press that his Valencia future is uncertain.

Questioned about reports linking him with a move to Manchester United, Gomes replied, as quoted by O Jogo: "This is not an important issue at this moment. We are focused on Portugal and that is what we are interested in speaking about."

But asked whether he would have any preference between La Liga, the Premier League or Serie A, he said: "It does not matter much at this point, it's all a mystery. Leaving Valencia? Talk to the president of the club."
