Angel Gomes was once named as one of the most promising youngster at Manchester United.
The 19-year-old began his career at United at the age of five and made his first-team debut, aged 16, in May 2017, becoming the youngest player to represent the club since Man United legend, Duncan Edwards in 1953.
But he has been frustrated over the lack of first-team actions this season, and with no guarantee from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the new season, he was forced to find a new club that can give him a regular football.

So, despite being offered a new contract, Gomes rejected the offer, and leave the club upon the expiry of his contract on 1 July.
Later, Ligue 1 club Lille announced the signing of Gomes on a five-year contract.
However, the attacking midfielder has been immediately loaned out to Portuguese club Boavista for the 2020-21 season.
