In case you didn't know.


Everton fans have seen Bernard complete his move to Goodison Park in the last half an hour, and two more players appear to be on the verge of signing for the club. However, the Red Devils seem to have cooled their interest, preferring to focus more on the likes of Leicester City's Harry Maguire and Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld.

He joins Lucas Digne at Everton, a player who arrived at Barcelona at the same time he did, with similar levels of success.

Barcelona have also announced Andre Gomes is moving to Everton on loan along with Colombian centre-back Mina.

"He's very close, the medical was done yesterday and I expect an announcement to be confirmed later this morning". "It's been a long, long saga has the Yerry Mina saga".

Mina, 23, only joined Barca six months ago from Palmeiras, but coach Ernesto Valverde has not been convinced by him and the club have made a decision to take advantage of his increased value following an impressive World Cup.

Everton had lined up a move for the Argentine, who is now injured, but United were only willing to sell if they signed a defender themselves.

Everton fans were relatively pessimistic about the upcoming campaign before this week, but the potential capture of Gomes and a handful of other players on deadline day would certainly raise the spirits.

While both stars are tipped to complete their moves before tonight's deadline, Mina is expected to move on a permanent deal and Gomes is expected to move on a loan deal. The Toffees take on newcomers, Wolves, in their first match of the 2018-19 Premier League season on Saturday, 11th August.
