There are not many things going in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s favour at the moment. Manchester United are also a nightmare off the pitch — being run into the ground by the Glazers and Ed Woodward.
Solskjaer, however, has shown a willingness to get the youngsters into the first team, so many thought Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes would break through and make an impact, but they’ve barely shown anything.
That may sound harsh — but you have to look at Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams, two youngsters who look like ready-made first team stars. You can’t say the same about Chong or Gomes yet, and it could be just a matter of time. They’re still very young.
The main focus on the pair has actually been their future at the club, as their contracts run out at the end of the season.
According to The Sun, United are willing to treble Gomes’ wages to £30k p/w to entice him to stay, but they suggest Chelsea and Leicester City are interested in his signature.
There’s also word that his representatives have held talks with clubs in Italy and Spain.
The best plan for Angel Gomes would be to sign a new contract at United before spending a full season out on loan somewhere else to gain first team experience.
Meanwhile, The Times claim Chong is likely to move on in the summer as his agent pushes for an exit.
I’d rather keep Gomes than Chong…
