    Got good feelings about this one.
    Hope he has what it takes to be a bare chested marauder - time will tell.

    I added 50 people to that damn ITK convo yesterday about him going to Barcelona.

    Thanks @GroteBergMan98 for saying he was staying.

    Guess this young player trusts Jose, ay @FCBarca unlike Sancho down the road who had no trust in Lord Pep.

    You can see how highly the club rate him. Personal interview after a signing the first professional contract. I don't remember any other youngster having that.

    Finally! Let's get Ozil to sign a contract with us, Gomes will be a successor to Ozil in a couple of years. in the future, I hope we'll have a full midfield of United Academy graduates with Pereira (RAM), Gomes (AM), Rashford (LAM) Pogba (CM) and Mctominay (CM) :drool::drool: (hope i don't hyping them up much)

    That's the beauty & advantage of bringing up kids in your own academy and what differs from the Sancho case

    A player of his creative & attacking potential though, few would cite development under Mou as a good path to take and again that's where it appears the player's loyalty paid off.

    Fair point. Have to say I'm over the moon he didn't sign for you as I think he genuinely could be the next Iniesta, he's that talented. The point could have been argued that Barca and Spain is more suited to his game too.

    I doubt very much Barcelona were really in the running, not seriously anyway - only perhaps if the player had some aspirations to play at Barcelona. The B team is poor as is the coach López.

    Definitely Spain or Dortmund (Who he seemed to be linked to probably made more sense owing to his style of play). Or City, obviously but I suspect making that move wouldn't have been easy. I'd just like to see a player with that profile be brought up well since a player's potential can be damaged if not handled well- even recent history is littered with examples of squandered talent

    I do find the timing interesting, can't be a coincidence so soon after the instagram hoopla

    I don't think the Instagram thing was anything really. He liked his mates post. I absent mindedly like my mates stuff on their all the time.

    Great news.

    So much for the papers, unreliable ITKs and the furore regarding him 'liking' that City post. :lol:

    BvB, Barca and Juve can feck off.

    Surely it's unusual that a youth player get this kind of attention from the club's official channels?
