Angel Gomes has been hyped since a very young age at United, although the 19-year-old never managed to find his feet running for the Reds from Manchester, instead watching the likes of Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams thrives.

Gomes has only made 10 appearances for the club in all competitions and his frustration over lack of game time made him consider his future.

Manchester United’s Head of Academy Nicky Butt in 2018 talked about the versatility of Gomes, “Angel has got the ability to play pretty much anywhere. He’s a footballer so everyone automatically thinks he’s an attacker but we like him in the pivot role to set up play and get the ball moving. He keeps possession and, in European football, keeping the ball is massive. If you don’t keep possession in the middle of the park, it’s going to be a struggle.”
