Unveiling clouds of speculation, the Manchester United attacking midfielder Angel Gomes, aged 19, is edging closer towards an Old Trafford exit at the end of this term according to reports.
The teenager had raised quite a few eyebrows this week, deleting the club from his Instagram bio and getting rid of numerous club related posts.
Nonetheless, Samuel Luckhurst, chief Manchester United writer, has specified in the Manchester Evening News that the midfielder’s representatives were “underwhelmed” by the club’s offer.
Accordingly, the midfielder would end up being a free agent at the end of the season when his current contract expires.
The Mancunian, who’s reportedly the first player born in the 2000s to appear in the Premier League, has been receiving less game time lately. He was left out of the squad when the club faced AZ Alkmaar last week, and even in the League Cup clash against Colchester yesterday.
Having only made four appearances in this season, the teenager is purportedly allowed to sign a pre-contract with any clubs of other nationalities apart from England as of January 1st.
Furthermore, despite having not registered any goals in the eight appearances he has had for the Red Giants, the creative midfielder is certainly a storehouse of potential. Consequently, it’s definitely understandable if the player’s looking for greener pastures.
Even though it remains true that there is still plenty of time for the club to offer a deal which could fasten the 19-year-old to Old Trafford, Gomes might have played his last minutes for the Mancunian club.
