Solskjaer confirms Angel Gomes will leave Man United this week

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the club has failed to reach an agreement with youngster Angel Gomes over a new contract.

As such, the highly-rated teenager is set to leave the club when his contract expires on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old came through the academy ranks at the club and is one of the few who have made first-team appearances under the Norwegian manager. 

Speaking ahead of Tuesday night's Premier League match against Brighton, Solskjaer confirmed that today, Monday, might be the last day for the player at the club, who will now become a free agent. 

"I've not heard from him last night or this morning so it seems like they haven't managed to agree on anything," he said in response to the question on whether the youngster was set to leave.

"The answer is probably short - yes."

Gomes has made a total of five appearances this season, with two of those being substitute roles in the Premier League, with the other three starts in the Europa League.

Opportunities have become limited partly due to the emergence of other young players, notably Mason Greenwood, as well as the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January. 

Meanwhile, United will be preparing for their Premier League clash away to Brighton on Tuesday night hoping to pick a second win in a row and push for a top-four finish.
