Those contract talks appear to have stalled, with Gomes having turned down an offer.

And The Independent reports that Chelsea are interested in Gomes but that he has been courted by other top clubs.
The newspaper Gomes was offered £25,000 a week by United but is likely to leave Old Trafford.
“I’ve got no news, nothing,” Solskjaer said at a news conference on Monday when asked whether Gomes was set to leave.
“I’ve not heard from them last night or this morning, it seems like they haven’t managed to agree. The answer is probably short and ‘yes [he’s leaving]’, then.”
