Angle Gomes left Manchester United after rejecting a new contract offer with many fans saying that it may be like the Paul Pogba situation.

Highly-rated young attacking midfielder Angel Gomes has left Manchester United after rejecting a new contract offer, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Chelsea have been linked with Gomes in British media reports but their manager Frank Lampard has dismissed suggestions his club made a lucrative offer for the player.
