United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has all but confirmed that the 19-year-old will leave Old Trafford when his contract expires on Tuesday, after the England U20 international rejected the Red Devils' £25,000-a-week contract offer, and now it appears as if there is potential for the Blues to swoop in and sign the attacking midfielder to a contract described as "persuasive."

The teenager is said to have offers on the table from a handful of clubs across world football, with Chelsea among Valencia, Benfica and Hamburg in the leading sides chasing Gomes' signature.

Hakimi, who has spent the past two years on loan at Borussia Dortmund, has been unable to convince Zinedine Zidane that he can dislodge Dani Carvajal as the first-choice right-back at the Bernabeu. As a result, he's now on the verge of completing a move to Inter Milan, with the Red Devils being left in the dust.

The report states that in addition to United, Bayern Munich also made an offer for Hakimi, but the Westfalenstadio veteran ultimately opted for a move to the San Siro.

The young Dutchman has stunned the Foxes with his decision to leave, with the club expecting him to sign a new deal and potentially work his way into the first team. A new contract had been offered to the 18-year-old, but in the end he decided that his future lies elsewhere.
