Angel Gomes future will be decided
Despite the season, the reboot of this week and until the beginning of August, Angel Gomes’ future at Manchester United will be decided in the next two weeks. The 19-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the month, while United have extended to long-term supply.
Just as effectively, MEN Sport understands no discussions have taken place between Gomes and the club for a short-term extension that would allow him to continue playing for the team during the last weeks of the season. This means that Gomes can leave on the 1st of July, in spite of the current season.
United will be frustrated to lose a young player for free. Gomes was highly thought of at Old Trafford for many years, and that they have had with Paul Pogba, it can be a costly mistake to make.
If Gomes pens a new deal or not, short-term or otherwise, remains to be seen. But with his contract, which expires on 30 June, a decision in the next two weeks.

Another player who is an uncertain short-term future is Dean Henderson. The Sheffield United goalkeeper, who was loaned by Manchester United, could leave Bramall Lane when his loan contract at the club expires on 30 June.

“Yeah, there has been (contact with Solskjaer). There has always,” Wilder said. “I talked to Ole yesterday morning. He was on foot at the training ground. I thanked him for his collaboration with the Dean and we are in the process in the next few days of the finalization of the Dean to stay with us until the end of the season.
“I’ve got to say Ole was brilliant, as he always is and has been very pro-Dean of the stay and pleased with what Dean has done for us and what we have done for him.
“It can’t be under-estimated, and the opportunity we gave him to play Premier League football and we have been very pleased with him.”
