LONDON - Talented teenage midfielder Angel Gomes is set to leave Manchester United as his contract is expiring on Tuesday.

The highly-rated 19-year-old came through the academy at Old Trafford and made his debut aged 16 in May 2017, becoming the youngest player since Duncan Edwards in the 1950s to feature for the first team.

But Gomes has only made 10 first-team appearances and contract talks hit a roadblock, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now expecting the United midfielder to leave when his contract runs out.

Asked at a press conference on Monday, if Gomes would be staying at the club, the United boss said: "I've got no news, nothing, so it doesn't look like it."

Pushed to clarify if Gomes was leaving, Solskjaer added: "To be honest, I've not heard from them last night or this morning, so it seems like that they haven't managed to agree (a deal), so the answer is probably short and 'yes' then."
