Angel Gomes says he’d like to return to Old Trafford – Man United News And Transfer News

Former Manchester United player Angel Gomes has said he “would love to come back” to United.

The revelation occurred during an interview with the French medium L’Equipe.

Gomes, who had been part of United’s academy since he was six years old, left the club in 2020 and now plays for Lille.

Gomes was one of the most valuable members of United’s youth team, winning the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award in 2016/17.

It was José Mourinho who gave Gomes his senior debut when he was just 16 years old and went on to make 10 appearances for the club.

Despite being predicted to have a great future at Old Trafford, he left for France on a free transfer.

Speaking of his decision to leave, the youngster said: “It was a very difficult decision. In my heart I wanted to leave, in my head I thought about staying.

He continued, “I had to follow my heart. I felt that I needed to take another step in my career.”

“I felt that if I had stayed, there would not be many opportunities for me. Luis Campos and Lille talked about his project and I believed in him even more”.

Upon arrival, Gomes was loaned out to Boavista but after an impressive season he returned to Lille where he is thriving.

However, Gomes has not given up on the idea of ​​playing for United again, saying: “Can I imagine going back one day? Obviously, it’s my home.”

He continued: “I would love to come back. But you never know in football. I just have to keep my feet on the ground, and keep playing, getting the most out of it. I cannot predict what will happen in the future.”

So far, he has made 13 appearances for Lille this season, scoring once.
