Bad news for the Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
The punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are always keeping tabs on who might be the next big thing in European football – and Man Utd have a fair few young stars in their ranks.
The Manchester giants have seen a great number of youth players make it into the Man Utd first team over the last few years, with Marcus Rashford the latest to make the grade.
Another young star that has been touted for big things is Angel Gomes, a 16-year-old attacking midfielder.
Gomes has been attracting the interest of a few of the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern in recent weeks, with his spellbinding performances at youth level raising his profile drastically.
However, with good performances often comes foreign interest; and Man Utd could have a struggle on their hands to keep hold of the young Englishman.
According to the Daily Mail, Barcelona are eyeing a move for Gomes – and the Spanish giants are often simply too good a prospect to turn down.
Crucially, they add that United will likely be keen to hold onto him, given that he is so highly rated amongst the Man Utd brass.
Gomes has been slowly progressing through the ranks at Man Utd in recent years, and is currently amongst the under-18s, with a first team role expected to follow.
