Manchester United confirmed yesterday that Angel Gomes has singed a professional deal with the club. The teenage playmaker has recently impressed big time and deserved the contract.
Last season, in 20 appearances for United’s U-18 side, he directly contributed in 18 goals (12 goals and 6 assists). He even made his senior debut for the club against Crystal Palace in the PL last May but only featured for 2 minutes.
This season, the 17-year-old attacking midfielder has netted 5 goals and provided 3 assists in 10 appearances for the U-18 Man Utd side.
Back in June, Angel even caught the attention of Brazilian legend Ronaldinho (Express). Gomes is a naturally gifted starlet like Rashford and it will not come as any surprise to see him in the starting XI soon.
Here is how the playmaker will line up in Man Utd’s starting XI. He naturally plays in the No.10 role behind the striker and must get the nod to start there whenever Mourinho opts to pick him.
