Man United attacker considering exit after Solskjaer’s comments

Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes is considering leaving Old Trafford as he looks to gain more regular first-team football and has a host of offers from abroad.

The 18-year-old ace, who has captained England at under-16, under-17 and under-18 levels, is rated as one of the most talented players to come through the Red Devils’ academy in recent years.

The teenager was first handed a Premier League debut back in the 2016-17 season by Jose Mourinho, while he turned out twice for the Red Devils under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

However, Portuguese newspaper A Bola says, Angel Gomes feels he must have been afforded more playing time, playing just nine minutes against Huddersfield in December and getting 15 minutes against Cardiff on the final day of the season.

The Englishman only has one year left on his deal with the Red Devils, meaning the club may need to sell now or risk losing him for nothing in 2020.

Clubs in Portugal and Spain have already approached Angel Gomes as well as, notably, Paris Saint-Germain, and is looking for assurances over his playing time before committing to stay at Manchester United for another year.

Interestingly, the youngster was also upset by comments Solskjaer made to him after his 15-minute cameo against Cardiff City, saying it was a pity he was so physically fragile and light.

The youngster did not take well to that, and the remark has compounded fears that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the right manager to give him the opportunities he craves.
