Earlier this week a fee of £500,000 for Goss was what the press reported but it looks like QPR will have to play a slightly higher fee, albeit small in the grand scheme of things for what is a very talented 21-year-old footballer.
The interesting part of The Independent’s piece is the comment that Goss rejected a new contract offer from Man United in order to chase first-team football. At 21, he’s certainly at the right age to be playing senior football regularly and had that injury not happened at United, maybe that would have been at Old Trafford but unfortunately injury robbed him of that chance.
Goss has been in fine form with the U23s ever since returning from a serious injury which curtailed his progress last year. That injury made it impossible for him to build on the momentum he gained from going away with the first-team on tour under Louis van Gaal.
His free-kick delivery into Matty Willock recently secured United a dramatic 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield:

Like Will Keane and possibly James Wilson before him, Goss is going to become one of those United youngsters who had so much promise but who weren’t able to fulfil their own potential at the club due to injuries stopping their progress.
It’s a real shame from United’s point of view in that respect but going to play regular football at QPR will be a positive move for Goss and one which I hope kick starts his career. Like Michael Keane, I think Goss has got what it takes to play Premier League football and I’m keen to see how he gets on under Ian Holloway.
