Just a few weeks after a viral video of Manchester United’s Portuguese youngster, Angel Gomes, showing the midfielder visiting Prophet T. B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Ikotun, Lagos, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the highly-rated youngster is yet to sign a contract extension and looks set to leave Manchester United on Tuesday.
The highly-rated 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.
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.
The signing of Bruno Fernandes, the emergence of fellow academy graduate Mason Greenwood and a long list of niggling injuries – the main reason he visited Prophet T. B. Joshua in Lagos – have limited Gomes’ first-team opportunities, and it now seems most likely that he will leave the club this summer.
