MIna: I want to win things at Everton

Barcelona should consider a way of formally honouring Everton this summer as the Premier League side have become a valued customer at the Camp Nou, sending a total of 52.6 million euros to the club in exchange for players that Ernesto Valverde was keen to offload.

Brazilian winger Bernard has revealed the key role Everton boss Marco Silva played in convincing him to move to Goodison Park despite offers from Chelsea, West Ham and AC Milan.

Everton kick off their new Premier League campaign with a trip to Molineux to take on Wolves tomorrow, and Silva's men will have to be at their very best, if they are to return to Merseyside with anything to show for their efforts.

'They are historically among the four most successful clubs in England and when I found out about the club and what the manager wanted from me, I was happy. I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team.

The 23-year-old only joined Barcelona from Palmeiras in the January transfer window.

Second Test, Day two
When is the England vs India Test match? James Anderson has the new Duke's, he will begin from the the pavilion end. Their last defeat came against Pakistan back in May this year when Joe Root's men were beaten by nine wickets.

Gomes has always been a fringe player at Barcelona, despite signing for a fee of €35 million (£31m/$41m) plus €20m in add-ons in 2016, with only 46 appearances made in La Liga since joining from Valencia.

Marca says Barca have sought to armour themselves from any blow-back over Mina's sale by including a buy-back clause in the transfer.

"FC Barcelona would like to publicly express their thanks to Yerry Mina for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best for the future".

During negotiations for Mina, Everton were offered Gomes on a season-long loan, the Portugal midfielder having struggled at Barcelona since his €35m (£31.5m) arrival from Valencia two years ago.
