Chelsea make ‘lucrative’ transfer offer to Angel Gomes on free as Solskjaer confirms 19-year-old is quitting Man Utd – The Sun

CHELSEA have reportedly made a "lucrative" offer to sign Angel Gomes after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed he has not extended his Manchester United contract.

The playmaker is set to walk out on Old Trafford today, having failed to agree fresh terms with the club.

According to the Independent, Gomes rejected an offer of £25,000 plus bonuses, but had more favourable options elsewhere.

One of those is said to be Chelsea, with manager Frank Lampard keen to add the 19-year-old to his crop of homegrown talent.

Super-agent Pini Zahavi is involved in the discussion, but Gomes also plenty of other interest from across Europe.

It is understood he has been approached by clubs from Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal with Hamburg, Valencia and Benfica named as teams among those leading the chase.

The attacking midfielder has been restricted to just six first-team appearances this season so has refused to sign a deal and will be a free agent from July 1st.

Manager Ole Solskjaer said: “I've not heard from them last night or this morning, it seems like they haven't managed to agree.”

Gomes has represented England at every level from under 16 to under 20 and was captain of the under-17 World Cup winning side in 2016.

He 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 under-18s.

London born Gomes’ father Gil was a Portuguese under-21 international.

He is also the godson of United legend Nani.
