The Manchester United youth academy graduate is willing to join Frank Lampard’s Chelsea revolution in a bid to revitalize his career.

Angel Gomes will be the first player to call Stamford Bridge his home since Juan Sebastian Veron’s move in early 2000s.

The Red Devils youth academy graduate has been tipped to have a great career but has not been allowed first team minutes. Successive managers promised but did not deliver. Disillusioned, he is leaving Old Trafford.

No other player has moved in this direction while Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic left Chelsea to join Manchester United.

Angel Gomes’s defection will not be the first for United. Paul Pogba is the most famous example. But other fewer famous examples are shared below.
