English Premier League giants Manchester United have confirmed that Angel Gomes will leave the club after refusing to sign a new deal.
In a statement, United noted: “Manchester United can confirm that Angel Gomes has not taken up the offer of a new contract and has, therefore, left the club.
United has been trying to convince Gomes to sign a new deal but there reports that he needed assurance with his chances in the first team and that some of his suitors had a better deal than United with the player strongly being linked with a move to Chelsea FC.
The 19-year-old who came through United’s academy became the first player born in the 2000s to represent the club’s first team, as a substitute for Wayne Rooney in the final game of the 2016/17 season, against Crystal Palace.
His final outing for United came in the 4-0 defeat of Norwich City at Old Trafford in the Premier League in January with the player having majorly been used in the Europa League.
United wished Angel the very best of luck for the future and thanked him for his efforts for the club.
