Angel Gomes set to leave Manchester United

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Angel Gomes is likely to leave the club. He was initially hoping that the midfielder would extend his contract at Old Trafford but there has been no update, with the 19-year-old's deal set to run out on Tuesday. "I've got no news, nothing, so it doesn't look like [he will stay]," Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday. "I've not heard from them last night or this morning. It seems like they haven't managed to agree so the answer is probably short and yes [he will leave]." Meanwhile, Man United, who will be facing Chelsea in the last 4 of the FA Cup after eliminating Norwich City during the weekend, will turn their attention to the Premier League as they travel to face Brighton on Tuesday.
