It is the best league in the world.

'I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here. I am also determined to do my best for Everton.

Barcelona defender Yerry Mina is on the verge of completing a move to Everton after undergoing a medical in Spain, according to reports. The English club will pay FC Barcelona 30.25 million euros plus 1.5 million euros in variables.

Andre Gomes' Barcelona nightmare is set to be put on hold for a year after the Catalan club confirmed they have reached an agreement for him to go on loan to Everton for the 2018-19 season. The 25-year-old has played 29 times for his country. The fee represents a healthy profit for the Spanish champions, who signed Mina from Palmeiras for €11.8m (£10.6m) only in January and obtained a buy-back option in the deal.

But Mourinho rounded on unfavourable comparisons between his side and Liverpool and Spurs, who also finished the season trophyless and below United in the table last season.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Reportedly Adds Samuel L. Jackson & Cobie Smulders
Now we know a couple of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are suiting up again to meet Spidey on the big screen for the first time. Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled for a July 2019 release.

Barcelona followed that news with confirmation that Portugal midfielder Andre Gomes would also be moving to the Goodison Park club on a season-long loan.

The Toffees have announced that Brazil worldwide Bernard has joined on a free transfer, while Barcelona have confirmed that Yerry Mina has moved to Goodison Park on a permanent basis, and Andre Gomes has made the same switch, having left the Nou Camp on loan.

Gomes joined Barca from Valencia in 2016, costing the club a reported €35million, but he has struggled to hold down a first-team place. He has made just six appearances during his time in Spain.
