Manchester United gave Gomes his debut when he was just 16, with Jose Mourinho giving him some minutes in a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in 2017.

Chong, meanwhile, was handed his debut by Solskjaer last season.

And with United planning to sign one of Jack Grealish or James Maddison in the summer, he could find himself further down Solskjaer’s pecking order.

Chong is a right winger.
