Manchester United are becoming confident of securing Angel Gomes to a new contract.
Gomes comes off contract at the end of June.
But talks with the England youth international are still ongoing and there is hope at United he can be convinced to stay, says ESPN.
Gomes has made 10 first team appearances since making his debut on the final day of the 2016-17 season as a 16-year-old.
He was part of the England under-17 squad which won the World Cup in 2017 alongside Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho and was named United's young player of the year in 2017, 12 months after Marcus Rashford collected the same award.
