With football shuttered, Manchester United brass is not resting on their laurels, as they continue to lock-down Academy talent with professional contracts.
United have just secured the long-term future of youngsters Dillon Hoogewerf and Johan Guadagno, and are looking to do the same for the highly rated Angel Gomes.
More coverage from the Mirror below:
Manchester United have reignited contract talks with a disgruntled Angel Gomes during the past two weeks and even offered the teenager an increased offer of £30,000-a-week to stay with the Red Devils – but they will have to fend off interest from Chelsea.
The midfielder is soon to be out of contract at Old Trafford and, according to the Metro , has been frustrated by the lack of first-team opportunities, making just six outings for United this season, half of which came in the Europa League.
And this has put Chelsea on high alert, with the Blues making their intentions clear to the player’s representatives.
The 19-year-old has been with the side for over a decade and United see him as having a big future, the only trouble is that despite his talent he does not, the club feel, possess the same physicality as Mason Greenwood or Tahith Chong, both of whom have stepped up to the first team this season.
We’ll keep you covered as this story continues to progress. See below for some highlights from Angel’s career to date.
