Premier League side, Chelsea, have made a shocking bid for Manchester United starlet, Angel Gomes, according to The Sun.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed he has not extended his Manchester United contract.

Manchester United could risk losing the playmaker today if they fail to agree fresh terms as his contract expires on June 30.

According to the Independent, Gomes rejected an offer of £25,000 plus bonuses but had more favourable options elsewhere.

One of the most interested clubs is Chelsea, as manager Frank Lampard is keen to add the 19-year-old to his crop of homegrown talent.

Super-agent Pini Zahavi is involved in the discussion, but Gomes also plenty of other interest from across Europe.

It is understood he has been approached by Hamburg, Valencia and Benfica among leading clubs from the continent.

The attacking midfielder has been restricted to just six first-team appearances this season so has refused to sign a deal and will be a free agent from July 1.

Manager Ole Solskjaer said yesterday: “I've not heard from them last night or this morning, it seems like they haven't managed to agree.”
