Barcelona eyeing unhappy Man Utd midfielder Angel Gomes

Barcelona are eyeing Manchester United midfielder Angel Gomes.

The Manchester Evening News says Barcelona are tracking Gomes as he approaches the final year of his United contract.

Gomes, 18, has generated interest from clubs across Europe since making his United debut at the age of 16 years and 263 days against Crystal Palace in May 2017 and is out of contract in 2020.

The Salford-raised playmaker has only made three additional substitute appearances since his first-team bow and Gomes had a loan moved lined up in January.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who played Gomes in his first Old Trafford match in charge against Huddersfield, blocked Gomes' departure in the winter window but only sent him on again in the final game of the season against Cardiff.
