Man Utd fears grow as battle to keep duo at Old Trafford intensifies

Manchester United are facing a tough battle to keep youngsters Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes at the club, according to a report.

Both players are out of contract in the summer and as well as there being no indication that either will stay on at Old Trafford, they will be free to talk to foreign clubs next month.

Recent reports have linked Chong, 20, with a move away from United in the next few months, with one claim saying that the Dutchman’s representatives are unhappy with his amount of game time.

Chong has appeared six times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term – Gomes four – with the pair mostly being selected for outings in the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

According to The Telegraph, Chong and Gomes are considering their options “carefully”, with both players receiving interest from across Europe.

The newspaper claims that Juventus are keen on Chong, while Barcelona have registered initial interest in bringing Gomes to the Camp Nou.

What’s more, it would reportedly be a big blow to Solskjaer if two young players leave the club when the Norwegian manager’s remit for his rebuild at United is based on exciting youth talent.

However, United are reportedly still confident of being able to tie down the players to new deals, despite their futures at the club looking bleak.

While other youngsters such as Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have announced themselves in the club’s first team in style, Chong and Gomes have been unable to have a similar impact.



In other United transfer news, a report has claimed that the Red Devils are willing to offer Erling Braut Haaland £200,000 per week to join the club.

Haaland – who has scored 28 goals in 22 appearances so far this season – has been heavily linked with a move to United in recent weeks.

According to The Sunsuch an offer would see the 19-year-old’s wage rise enormously from £20,000.

What’s more, United are said to have included several lucrative bonuses as part of the deal.
