Hello Eds, Just a short question: If you have any info can you elaborate on the situation regarding Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong.


{Ed002's Note - Tahith Chong (RW) one for the future - MU don't want to sell but the player has concerns about having no mapped out future and MUs efforts to buy themselves back in to contention in the summer of 2019 - a tentative approach from Bayern Munich was turned away. BM may decide to look to TC again in 2020 as one potential long term replacement for Arjen Robben. Juventus have made his representatives aware of their interest in the player as well.

As for Angel Gomes (AM) interest has been shown by Borussia Dortmund and the player would be open to a move to London if there was a guarantee of playing time.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds like both lads are considering their options and may well look for moves away. Dortmund would be a good move for Gomes.

They have talent but they need to realise not every player is a Rooneyor a mbappe and a first regular at that age.

What they need is a loan for regular game time and reassess then.

From the sounds of it both would be happy if they had some sort of clear pathway mapped out for their progression.

Something more like, we are going to work on these areas of your game to enable to compete for a place in the first team, you'll be given chances in the cup games, and maybe depending on training ground performances on the bench for league games. In January you'll be loaned out to (x, y and z) for the rest of the season to gain regular football. Following that we will reassess where you are over the summer with maybe another loan next season or a run in the first team.

Or something like that. Young players need attainable targets, and a clear path laid out in front of them.

True. So that's down to the manager and the head of youth development. But we don't know if this has been discussed.

Mort, and Shappy.
Young players need expert guidance. As Shappy says the club can provide excellent career guidance. But they are often as the mercy of unscrupulous agents or dumbass family members who are chasing the money and not playing the long game.
That plus the prospect of high level football on the continent from clubs that than make 30 / 100m back in 2 or 3 years if the player excels like sancho.
Too often there appears to be no parental guidance either.
Mort you are bang on. Every club has at least 60 players on the clubs books between the ages of 16 and 20. How many teenagers start every week in the epl? The %percentage is minute. They are a rarity in reality.
Teenagers in football need to be patient and be well advised and guided. Too many are not.

Gomes has a massive decision to make. From what I’m told he and his family both believe he should be a regular and on more money etc. Like I said before I’ve been told this by someone I’ve chatted too who follows the academy and knows a few of the players.

On Chong, there’s a player in him, but he needs toughened up a bit. I would suggest that ramanzani is looking a better player at this moment in time and Dylan Levitt is looking top notch.

I wonder if the minutes mason is getting is making them rethink their futures.

Hi Ed, is there perhaps a specific London club which has shown an interest in taking Gomes?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Ah okay, thank you for the reply, Ed002. Enjoy your weekend!
