Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful Angel Gomes will agree to a new contract at Manchester United.
The 19-year-old is approaching the end of his deal and United are trying to tie him down to fresh terms.
Talks with the midfielder have been going on for many months and Solskjaer believes a resolution is close, though he did not rule out losing the player.
"Angel is a top kid, we've had him here for so many years," said the United manager.
"We've offered him a deal and hopefully he'll take that, if not I'll wish him all the best.
"From what I understand it's not too far away. If not, we'll wish him all the best."
Gomes made his United debut back in 2017 and has made two substitute appearances in the Premier League this season.
Solskjaer also offered a team news update ahead of Friday's match at Tottenham, which could have a significant bearing on both clubs' Champions League aspirations.
The Norwegian revealed Marcus Rashford (back) and Paul Pogba (ankle) were available for the club's first game back after the coronavirus-enforced shutdown, with Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe the only absentees.
"We have two players – Jones and Axel – who will miss this game and let's see how bad they are, " he said, without disclosing the nature of their injuries.
"Apart from that, the rest of the squad is fit and available. And of course, Marcus and Paul have been out a long period, but they're available. How long they play – let's see."
United sit fifth, three points behind fourth-place Chelsea and four ahead of Spurs in eighth.
