Jose Mourinho will not be happy with this situationWhat’s the story?
According to a number of reports in the English press this afternoon, Premier League giants Manchester United are sweating over the future of starlet Angel Gomes as Barcelona continue to show an interest in the 17-year-old.
The Frenchman refused to sign a new deal under Sir Alex Ferguson after growing exhausted of his lack of playing opportunties, and left for Juventus for just £800,000 in a move engineered by agent Mino Raiola.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the La Liga giants want to strengthen their youth squads and Angel Gomes is seen as a flawless fit as he was named as the best youth player of Manchester United academy last season.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Juventus are looking to sign United youth academy prodigy Angel Gomes, as the 17-year-old is believed to be pondering over whether or not to sign a professional deal with the Red Devils.
Do you think United should do everything they can to hold on to Gomes? The youngster who joined the United academy at Junior school has also captained the England national team at the junior level.
A lot of very young talents have recently left the Premier League to further their interests overseas.
Gomes has a year left as a Scholar at United and it’s understood Barcelona have been closely monitoring the teenager for some time.
Gomes could become just another of one of a number of English youngsters quitting the Premier League for the chance to shine overseas – Manchester City’s Jadon Sancho left for Borussia Dortmund in the summer and Arsenal lost Chris Willock to Benfica.
