There is no doubt that Manchester United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are making moves to get the squad younger with transfers out over the last few seasons, and unfortunately that puts disgruntled midfielder Angel Gomes in an interesting position.

The seldom-used 19-year-old and his agent desperately tried to secure a January loan move out to another Premier League team but United blocked his request to leave. Gomes is out of contract at United at the end of the season and the club is struggling to negotiate a renewal and risk losing him on a free transfer in the summer.

As Gomes approaches his last five months of his United contract, he has generated a lot of interest from several European teams, including Barcelona and now Gomes is free to negotiate with overseas clubs because he is in the final year of his contract.
