Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has dismissed the rumours that the Blues are interested in signing Angel Gomes from Manchester United. The teenager will be leaving Old Trafford this summer after the club failed to agree a new contract and rumours emerged that Chelsea were interested.
Asked if Chelsea have made a bid for Gomes, Lampard said: “Yes, I can elaborate to the point that it’s never been mentioned at my end; so that’s it. And when asked if there is any interest, Lampard added: “No.” Gomes has made 10 first-team appearances for United, but has struggled to break into the team this season.
The former England international has a similar message regarding the supposed Chelsea interest in West Ham United‘s Declan Rice. “Declan Rice is a good player, you’re right, and I’ve known Declan Rice for a long time, as he was in the Chelsea academy, but there’s no talk,” said Lampard.
