Confirmed: Angel Gomes leaves United

Manchester United can confirm that Angel Gomes has not taken up the offer of a new contract and has, therefore, left the club.

The 19-year-old joined the Reds at a very young age and worked his way through the ranks before becoming the first player born in the 2000s to represent the first team, as a substitute for Wayne Rooney in the final game of the 2016/17 season, against Crystal Palace.

Angel Gomes replaces Wayne Rooney.
Angel Gomes made his Premier League debut as a substitute for Wayne Rooney in 2017.

It meant he became the youngest player since Duncan Edwards to make his senior debut for the club, soon after being awarded the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award.

The attacking midfielder made 10 senior appearances in total for the Reds - three of them starts, which all came in this season's Europa League.

His final outing came in the 4-0 defeat of Norwich City at Old Trafford in the Premier League in January.

Everybody at Manchester United would like to wish Angel the very best of luck for the future and thank him for his efforts for the club.
