Angel Gomes has hinted his priority is to stay at Manchester United, despite interest from Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
The 19-year-old prodigy is out of contract at the end of the campaign and is yet to put pen to paper on a fresh deal.
While fellow academy products Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have firmly established themselves as part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s senior team squad, Angel has struggled to make a similar impact.
The attacker has made just six first-team appearances across all competitions this season and the potential addition of Jadon Sancho this summer would further restrict Angel’s chances of making a breakthrough at Old Trafford.
He is said to have been frustrated at his inability to make progress and has watched on as several of his friends, including Tahith Chong, have signed improved contracts recently.
The Blues, who have blooded a clutch of youngsters this term under Frank Lampard, have been monitoring Angel’s situation carefully but Metro.co.uk reported last month that the Red Devils had reopened negotiations and are ready to offer the player a £30,000-a-week.
Speaking in an official Manchester United Google Hangout with teammate Andreas Pereira, Angel spoke about his ambitions at the club and appeared to commit his long-term future to his boyhood side.
‘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.’ said Gomes.
