Chelsea-linked Angel Gomes has taken to social media to thank Manchester United star Mason Greenwood.
Greenwood scored United’s opener in their 3-0 win over Brighton on Tuesday night and dedicated his celebration to Gomes, making an ‘A’ sign with his hands.
Gomes has now officially left Old Trafford after 14 years, rejecting a new contract offer from United.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder leaves following a nice touch from good friend Greenwood, who paid homage to someone he has come right through the United academy with in his celebration.
And Gomes has expressed his gratitude, posting a picture of the celebration on Instagram with the caption: “No words! I love you bro.
“Special, special player, thanks for the dedicated goal.”

Gomes, who only managed five first-team league appearances during his time at United has been linked with a move to Chelsea on a free this summer.
Reports earlier this week suggested the Blues had already agreed a deal with the England youth international.
