Angel Gomes (born 31 August 2000) is an English professional footballer who plays as a attacking midfielder for Manchester United.

Youth Career

Joined Manchester United from the age 7.

Was playing for Manchester United’s U15’s side aged 13.

A picture of Gomes’ formal contract signing with the club was posted by his father on Facebook, and now the Portuguese youngster will be focussing on improving at the Premier League giants over the coming years.

Voted the 2015 Manchester Premier Cup Most Valuable Player despite the fact United finished 12th and he only scored one goal

In the 2014/15 season as an Under-15 schoolboy was an unused substitute for the Under-18 side on numerous occasions and finally made his debut as a substitute in the last game of the season.

Scored his first goal for the U18’s away to Derby County in November 2015.

Became the youngest player to score a hat-trick for Manchester United at Academy level in almost 15 years when he came on as sub in a 5-1 win against Newcastle U18’s in August 2016.
