Departing Man Utd midfielder Angel Gomes to pursue career abroad

Departing Manchester United midfielder Angel Gomes is ready to pursue his career abroad.

Gomes became a free agent on July 1 and the Manchester Evening News report that he is considering a move abroad instead of staying in England.

It has been claimed that clubs in Spain, France, Germany and Portugal have all expressed an interest in signing the 19-year-old, but he is yet to decide where his future lies.

Chelsea were another club credited with an interest, but Frank Lampard poured cold water on those rumours this week by insisting the England youth star had 'not been mentioned' in any recruitment discussions.

There is a belief within Gomes' camp that the arrival of Bruno Fernandes to the club blocked the youngster's path to the first team, and his brother Rico and father Gil then actively explored better deals elsewhere.
