A preview of Everton star Andre Gomes’ absence from the club’s preseason tour of the United States was announced on Friday.
The preparation of the caramels begins
Ahead of the new campaign which is fast approaching, preparations are already well advanced on the blue half of Merseyside.
A season of change of course awaits Everton fans, of course, following another high-profile reshuffle on the club bench.
After Carlo Ancelotti left the Toffees to join Spanish giants Real Madrid last month, the board of directors of Goodison Park found themselves with a difficult task to replace the man who was seen as the perfect candidate to lead. the club to a prosperous new era.
And, in the end, despite a considerable backlash from the faithful of the Blues, Farhad Moshiri and co. chose to move for Rafael Benitez, the Spaniard having put pen to paper on a three-year contract in Merseyside:

Benitez has already started to put his mark on the Everton squad, only last week having seen Bernard leave, and all Andros Townsend, Demarai Gray and Asmir Begovic are bolstering the club’s staff ranks.
In turn, when photos started circling the Toffees’ last training session and a notable absence was reported, it immediately sparked speculation that another newly-elected squad member. inherited from Benitez could soon be in motion.
The player in question? André Gomes.
The Everton stars are currently in the United States, as part of the club’s preparations for the 2021/22 campaign.
Portugal midfielder Gomes, however, has nowhere been seen in official training photos posted online.
Those who are inspired by Blues and who were able to hope for a potential exit from the often criticized former Barcelona player, however, seem disappointed.
It comes amid confirmation – from The Liverpool Echo’s reliable Adam Jones – that Gomes’ absence early in training camp was planned.
The 27-year-old, in turn, is set to join Benitez’s charges imminently and will be available to take on both Millonarios and Pumas in the days to come.
