Chelsea are ready to lure Angel Gomes to Stamford Bridge with a lucrative contract offer as the young midfielder prepares to leave Manchester United this summer.

Gomes’ current deal at Old Trafford is due to expire on Tuesday and United’s attempts to convince the 19-year-old to extend his stay at the club have been unsuccessful.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was confident that an agreement could be reached when asked about Gomes earlier this month but the Norwegian appeared resigned to losing the England youth international at his press conference on Monday.

Asked whether Gomes would be putting pen to paper on a new deal, Solskjaer responded: ‘I’ve got no news – nothing. So it doesn’t look it.

‘I’ve not heard from them (the club) last night or this morning, so it seems like they haven’t managed to agree.

‘So the answer is probably short and yes (he’s going to leave).’

According to The Independent, Gomes turned down a £25,000-a-week contract from United after receiving better offers from other clubs in England and overseas.

The report claims one of those offers has come from Chelsea, while teams from Spain, Italy and Germany have also been credited with an interest in United’s highly-rated academy product.

Back in May 2017, Gomes made history as he became the youngest player since Duncan Edwards to make an appearance for United’s first-team.

However, the teenager has struggled to kick on since his debut three years ago and has played just six times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
