“It’s what I want to go on to do” – Rising Man United youngster outlines Old Trafford ambition



Angel Gomes is one of the bright talents at Manchester United

Angel Gomes has been linked with Premier League rivals Chelsea

Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes has opened up on his future and has hinted he wants to remain at the club.

The 19-year-old has featured just six times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, and is out of a contract at the end of the campaign (h/t Metro).

However, the youngster has seen other academy stars such as Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams become regulars under the gaffer.

Gomes faces a tough challenge with regards to breaking into the team. However, the youngster told Andreas Pereira over a Google Hangouts chat that he wants to win silverware with the Red Devils (h/t Metro):

“I’ve seen it over the years, coming up from the academy and being at United my whole career. It’s what I want to go on to do – win trophies for the club.”

Man United preparing deal to keep starlet

The 19-year-old has a bright future ahead of him and United have opened negotiations over a new deal last month (h/t Metro).

The report claims that Gomes would be paid £30,000-a-week by the Red Devils in hopes of keeping him at the club.

Chelsea are interested in the youngster too, and it will be interesting to see what happens with his contract.

Both Chelsea and United have young managers who are willing to provide starlets chances to impress. Frank Lampard has allowed youngsters such as Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham to become regulars at Stamford Bridge.

However, Ole has done the same with several of our academy stars, and it would make sense for Gomes to remain here.

The youngster knows the manager, the club and the other players well, and it is his dream to become successful here.

Hopefully, we can keep hold of the promising 19-year-old and see him star every week as a Red Devil.
