Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes is considering a move away from Old Trafford with his contract into its final six months.
The 19-year-old is said to be "underwhelmed" by the offer from the Red Devils having already rejected their opening offer and been angered by their decision to block a loan move away in January.
Gomes was close to a switch to Norwich having sought a fellow top flight side last month, but United pulled the plug late on.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has offered a host of young players first team opportunities this season with a genuine pathway existing for academy graduates.
But that may not be enough to retain Gomes, who has made six appearances in all competitions, and the same applies to Tahith Chong who has played a similar amount of games, reports the Manchester Evening News.
The Norwegian though is adamant that United is the best place for a young player to thrive given their history.
“We’ve had a lot of discussions with the boys. Obviously, their contracts operate out in the summer season but we want them to stay,” Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said recently.
“I can’t see a better location for a young lad which is come by way of the ranks in the academy to enjoy 1st group soccer. Both Angel and [Tahith] Chongy have been listed here for quite a few, many decades.
"We just want them to go on their improvement and ideally they can see that when youthful lads get their chance, they will get extra opportunities."
Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have been the two biggest success stories of United's faith in youth this season.
The pair have made a combined 29 starts this term as Solskjaer continues to back the club's academy talent, but that may not be enough to retain Gomes and Chong who are both highly rated.
