Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has delivered an update on the futures of Angel Gomes and Odion Ighalo, in his first pre-match press conference since the COVID-19 lockdown.

The boss is in the midst of preparing the team for its first competitive fixture since 12 March: a Premier League match away to Tottenham Hotspur on Friday.

But the Norwegian took time out to answer reporters’ questions on Gomes, who is in the process of negotiating on a new contract, and Ighalo, who recently extended his stay with the club until January 2021.

Ighalo has made a great start to United life since joining in January.

“Angel is a top, the top kid who we have had at the club for so many years,” began Solskjaer.

“We’ve offered him a deal, hopefully, he takes it. If not, I wish him all the best. Hopefully, from what I understand, it’s not too far away, so if not we wish him all the best.”

Gomes has made six appearances this season but has not featured since a substitute appearance during the final 10 minutes of our 4-0 win over Norwich City on 11 January.
