Chelsea reportedly made “lucrative” offer to sign Angel Gomes who walks out of Manchester United today

Frank Lampard’s side have reportedly made a “lucrative” offer to sign Angel Gomes after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed he has not extended his Manchester United contract.

The playmaker is set to walk out on Old Trafford today when his contracts ends, having failed to agree fresh terms with the club.

According to the Independent, Gomes rejected an offer of £25,000 plus bonuses, but had more favourable options elsewhere.

One of the most interested clubs is Chelsea, as manager Frank Lampard is keen to add the 19-year-old to his crop of homegrown talent.

Super-agent Pini Zahavi is involved in the discussion, but Gomes also plenty of other interest from across Europe.

It is understood he has been approached by Hamburg, Valencia and Benfica among leading clubs from the continent.

The attacking midfielder has been restricted to just six first-team appearances this season so has refused to sign a deal and will be a free agent from July 1.

Manager Ole Solskjaer said yesterday: “I’ve not heard from them last night or this morning, it seems like they haven’t managed to agree.”

Gomes has represented England at every level from under 16 to under 20 and was captain of the under-17 World Cup winning side in 2016.
