Angel Gomes has dropped a hint over his future at Manchester United.
The 19-year-old has yet to sign a new contract at the club, despite his current deal running out this summer.
According to the Metro, Chelsea have expressed an interest in Gomes and are looking to capitalise on his uncertain contract situation at Old Trafford.
Gomes has struggled for game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, starting just three games in all competitions.
But the report claims the club has reopened negotiations over a new deal and are confident the youngster wants to stay in Manchester.
And Gomes has revealed that his long-term ambition is to help the club win silverware.
“I’ve seen it over the years, coming up from the Academy and being at United my whole career,” he told the club’s official website.
“It’s what I want to go on to do – win trophies for the club.”
Gomes is one of the most talented young players to come out of the academy in years and we hope we are able to see his development in the red of United in the next few years.
While Gomes may want assurances of regular game time under Solskjaer next season if he does commit his future to the club, we feel he would benefit from a season out on loan getting to grips with first-team football.
Jesse Lingard had four loan spells before he established himself as a regular in the United first-team and the club may point to his career trajectory to prove to Gomes that the opportunity is there to eventually break into Solskjaer’s side.
