Angel Gomes on verge of new Man Utd deal but will earn 1/15th of what David De Gea is paid – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly closing in on a contract extension for Angel Gomes.

The young winger has been edging towards the Old Trafford exit door for a number of months with the likes of Chelsea keen to snap him up.

However an agreement to stay is now in sight, according to The Athletic.

Playing time is described as a key issue in negotiations between club and player, and Gomes has only featured six times this campaign.

That tally could increase once the restart gets underway, aided by the new rule enabling teams to throw on five substitutes throughout the 90 minutes.

And Gomes is reportedly set to earn in the region of £25,000-a-week if he signs on the dotted line.

That will be a touch under fellow academy graduate Tahith Chong's reported £30,000 weekly pay packet after the Dutch winger renewed his deal in March.

United currently top the Premier League for wage bills with an estimated £352million spent on player salaries every year.
