Meanwhile, ESPN pundit Gab Marcotti thinks Chelsea would be making a mistake if they sign Gomes.
He said: “I think if you’re Manchester United, you look at this and say ‘yeah, you may be a promising player, but this is the offer. This is what you’ve shown me you’re worth’. I think a lot of these stories are coming out because he has a new advisor.
“These guys have asset value, right? In the sense that you can bump [the transfer value] up in a few years, sell them, he’s homegrown and blah blah blah.
“I don’t think that should come into consideration for United, because they’ve got money.
“Unless you think this guy is going to be able to contribute to your team and not be someone who sits on the bench for three years and you sell to Newcastle for £10million, don’t mess around with this. It sets a bad precedent.
