2 min read

Boavista have confirmed the loan signing of former Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes following his move to French side Lille.

Gomes officially completed his move to Lille on Tuesday before being loaned to Portuguese team Boavista ahead of next season.

The 19-year-old opted to leave United when his contract expired at the end of June due to concerns over his pathway into the first team.

United were keen to keep hold of the talented teenager but Gomes turned down contract offers at Old Trafford, and instead chose to move to France.

Gomes will spend next season in Portugal, and Boavista have expressed their delight at having signed him.

“They say it is a promise, but for us it is already a certainty!” his new club wrote on Instagram.

“With all his training at Manchester United, where he arrived at just 6 years old. Angel always stood out from the crowd. In 2015 he was the best player in the MU premier Cup tournament, in 2016/2017 he made his debut in the RED team, replacing Wayne Rooney, against Cristal Palace, becoming the youngest player to take the field for the Red Devils.

“Angel Gomes, son of the Under 20 World Champion, by Portugal Gil Gomes, also has a remarkable history at the level of the national teams, his being at the service of the English national team. He passed through all levels (Under-16, 17, 18 and 19), having, in this course, been champion of the Under 17 world.

“With only 19 years old, Angel Gomes already has an enviable curriculum, adding now the arrival to Boavista, another great moment to his career. Welcome Pantera.”
