Chong set to sign for United

With the 2015/16 season drawing ever closer to its conclusion we can expect to see a sudden rise in transfer rumours once again. And the subject of this particular transfer rumour is Feyenoord wonderkid Tahith Chong.

It has been reported by the Daily Mail that talks are at an advanced stage and a deal is expected to be completed for the 16 year old in the coming days.

United are said to have seen off competition from other Premier League clubs such as Arsenal and Chelsea for Chong’s signature.

Feyenoord did try their best to keep hold of the youngster but the emergence of United’s youth players such as Marcus Rashford, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson appears to have given some encouragement to Chong.

Tahith Chong’s favoured position is on the left wing where he plays most of his football, but he can also play anywhere across the attacking front line, making him the type of versatile player Louis Van Gaal prefers.

As there has been no word about this transfer from either club, we should take this rumour lightly as we have seen reports like this on many occasions and nothing has come of it, leaving us all bitterly disappointed!
