Manchester United youngster, Angel Gomes, is expected to leave the club soon, manager Ole Gunner Solsjaer says.
The 19-year-old came through United’s academy and made his debut aged 16 in May 2017, becoming the youngest player since Duncan Edwards to feature for the first team.
However, contract talks between Gomes and the club reached a roadblock, with Solskjaer now expecting the United midfielder to leave when his contract expires on Tuesday.
When asked if Gomes would be leaving the club, Solskjaer responded: “I’ve not heard from him last night or this morning so it seems like they haven’t managed to agree anything.
“The answer is probably short – yes.”
Gomes has appeared twice off the bench in the Premier League this season, while starting three times in the Europa League.
Incidentally, Juventus are the current favorites to sign Gomes on a free transfer this summer.
That’s according to Paddy Power – per the Daily Mail – followed by Chelsea (4/1), PSG (6/1), Barcelona (8/1), Real Madrid (10/1), Manchester City (14/1) and Liverpool (20/1).
The signing of Bruno Fernandes and the emergence of fellow academy graduate Mason Greenwood has limited Gomes’ first-team opportunities, and it now seems he will leave the club this summer
Angel Gomes has battled with a different injury crisis in his career.
Odunews.com had earlier reported that Gomes was sighted in a video on social media showing the English footballer ‘receiving healing’ at T. B Joshua’s Synagogue church in Lagos.
Gomes however reacted to the video noting that he was simply practicing his faith.
