Man Utd confirm Angel Gomes exit after rejecting new contract offer

Manchester United have confirmed Angel Gomes has left the club.

Angel Gomes set to depart from old trafford after failed talks

The 19-year-old starlet has snubbed a new contract at Old Trafford and is now a free agent.

A club statement said: “Manchester United can confirm that Angel Gomes has not taken up the offer of a new contract and has, therefore, left the club.

“Everybody at Manchester United would like to wish Angel the very best of luck for the future and thank him for his efforts for the club.”

Gomes is one of ten United players departing the club on Wednesday after rejecting a reported £25,000 a week plus bonuses deal to remain at Old Trafford.

The England Under-20 international has a host of clubs chasing his signature as he now plots his next move.

Premier League rivals Chelsea are one of those interested in securing his services, although there could also be plenty of interest from abroad.

Attacking midfielder Gomes has been restricted to just six first-team appearances this season.

And that lack of opportunity for the ace, viewed as one of the brightest prospects to emerge through United’s academy in years, has convinced him to leave.

Gomes had been at Old Trafford since he was six and he became the the youngest player since Duncan Edwards to make his senior debut for the club.

He went on to make 10 appearances in total, with his three starts coming this season in the Europa League.

His final game for United was in the 4-0 home win over Norwich in January.

The attacker was also the youngest winner of United’s prestigious Jimmy Murphy youth player award in 2017, at the age of 15 years 362 days, after scoring 12 goals in 19 appearances for the U18s.

Best pal Mason Greenwood dedicated his goal in United’s win over Brighton to his now-former team-mate.

The 18-year-old opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the first half of his side’s 3-0 victory at the Amex after dazzling Lewis Dunk with two stepovers before drilling home.

And the striker celebrated his sixth Prem goal of the season by making an ‘A’ sign with his fingers – a tribute to his academy pal.

Greenwood posted a picture of the pose on Twitter to confirm it was meant for his academy mate, captioning it: “A promise is a promise.”

Gomes then took to social media to express his gratitude by uploading a snap of the forward celebrating in an Instagram story.

He wrote: “No words, I love you bro. Special, special player, thanks for the dedicated goal.”
