Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he’s confident Gomes will extend his stay at Manchester United amid strong interest from Chelsea and Barcelona.

“He’s a top, top kid that we’ve had in the club for so many years and we’ve offered him a deal,” Solskjaer said at his press conference on Thursday ahead of United’s trip to Tottenham.

“Hopefully he will take that.

“From what I understand it’s not too far away. If not, we’ll wish him all the best.”
