Barcelona's signing of André Gomes could end up costing the Catalan club as much as 70 million euros.

Los Azulgranas confirmed on Thursday evening that a deal had been reached over the Valencia midfielder's transfer to the Camp Nou.

Gomes joined Valencia in 2014, initially on loan.

35 million euros + a host of add-ons

And, according to sources close to Valencia and the player, Barça have verbally agreed a 35-million-euro fee with Los Che, plus another 20 million in add-ons thought certain to be activated.

On top of that, Gomes' switch to the LaLiga champions includes a possible extra 15 million bound up in a further set of performance-related clauses.

Players to move in the opposite direction?

Valencia are also negotiating with Barcelona with a view to players going the other way - either permanently or on loan - with discussions centring on Martín Montoya, Cristian Tello and Sergi Samper.
