While some Barca players were disappointed with Gomes saying he shouldn’t have stayed away given that the victory was the last Copa final for Andres Iniesta as a Barca player.

Gomes joined Barcelona in the summer of 2016 from Valencia in a five year deal worth €35 million, but just two seasons into his stay at the club, he might be on his way out of the club this summer.

He was part of the Portuguese team that won the 2016 UEFA European Championship after beating France in the final of the competition.
