United bid farewell to Angel Gomes: his destination, Lille and Boavista
Solskjaer has finally not managed to convince one of Manchester United's starlets to stay at Old Trafford. Angel Gomes is no longer part of the Red Devils.
"Thank you, @agomes_47, for all the support you've given the Foundation and our young people over the years. Good luck in your next chapter", the official account of the United youth system wrote.
Now, Gomes has signed for Lille. The Ligue 1 side have secured his services for the next few seasons.
Lille, therefore, have signed a promise that has been on the agenda of some of the big clubs in Europe, such as FC Barcelona. But Gomes, who is 19, has chosen France as his next destination, although he will not stay there.
And according to reports, Lille, just after signing him, will loan him out to Boavista in the Portuguese League. Gomes is Portuguese, and there he could make the ultimate leap into professional football.
