ANGEL OF MY EYE! Angel Gomes on ‘brink of signing new Manchester United deal in the region of £25,000-per-week’ despite interest from Chelsea.

With the news of United missing out on top prospect Jude Bellingham, the latest development around Angel Gomes’ future brings it into context.

Given how severely cash strapped United are, it makes sense they would forgo the relatively sizeable upfront fee for Bellingham and instead give Gomes the contract he has been hankering for.

More below:

Manchester United are edging closer to securing Angel Gomes’ long-term future, with the midfielder set to sign a £25,000-per-week deal. 

Gomes caught the eye during his rise through United’s academy before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bled him into the first-team this season. 

However, he has only managed six appearances in 2019-20 while fellow youngsters Daniel James, Mason Greenwood, Brandon Williams and Scott McTominay were granted more regular minutes. 

At the end of the day, this is a good deal given Gomes’ age and potential upside. Still only 19 years old, the Englishman’s future looks to be at United for now; let’s see if he’s given an opportunity to shine during the restart.

About Alex 87 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
