Last weekend, there were reports from the English press saying Manchester United have the first-refusal option for Sporting youngster Luis Gomes.
It was reported that even though the Portuguese ace has just signed his first professional deal with the Lions, he could actually transfer to the Red Devils in a £14 million deal.
A Portuguese newspaper Record went after this story, and the outlet totally dismisses it in a short article.
They have heard an ‘official source’ from the Lions who claims that such information ‘has no foundation’.
The Red Devils have no right to buy the prodigy and the amount for his departure is not set.
Record claims that Luis, who’s represented by super-agent Jorge Mendes, will continue to work normally and try to reach the club’s first team one day.
Elsewhere, Manchester United star Sergio Romero has reportedly demanded showdown discussions with the club after being left out of their PL squad.
The South American has served as back-up to David de Gea since his arrival at United five years ago but fell further down the pecking order when youngster Dean Henderson returned from his loan stint during the summer.
Sergio has subsequently seen his hopes of playing any competitive football before the January transfer market ended after he was omitted from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s PL list, alongside Phil Jones.
However, the Daily Star reports that Sergio only found out about recent snub via social media and has now demanded talks with Ed Woodward about his treatment.
Romero is hopeful that the board will agree to terminate his £100,000-a-week deal, opening the door for him to join another club on a free transfer.
