Manager of the club Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has earlier said that he hoped the player agrees to the new terms, but the boss has changed his tune as regards the player.
Asked if Gomes would be staying at Old Trafford, Solskjaer replied: “I’ve got no news, nothing, so it doesn't look like it.”
Gomes made his debut for United during the 2016/2017 season when he came off the bench against Crystal Palace in Jose Mourinho’s final game for club.
He has been part of the first team set-up and has only managed to play three European League games, and since return of football due to the pandemic, he was not listed for any of United’s three games so far.
Pushed further on whether the player would be leaving Solskjaer added: “I've not heard from them last night or this morning, it seems like they haven't managed to agree so the answer is probably short and yes, then.”
