Manchester United could be bracing themselves for a bid from one of European football’s elite clubs, as Barcelona circle around the hottest talent in our academy at the moment; 16-Year-old attacker Angel Gomes, who is making waves at youth level here at the Theatre of Dreams.
That’s according to the Manchester Evening News, who say that the Catalan giants are interested in taking Gomes away from Old Trafford on a permanent deal as soon as possible.
The 16-year-old is, without doubt, the key member of our U18 team at the moment as he seems to have a hand in every single game he plays at youth level. His talent levels are absolutely out of this world and you can see exactly why Barcelona want to bring him in.
However, United would be daft to just let him leave. The Englishman is under contract until 2018 so they do have time to persuade him to put pen to paper on a new deal here. Perhaps they’ll even opt to give him the chance in the cup competitions next season as a sweetener for him signing an extension.
