Tahith Chong opts against signing new Manchester United contract amid Juventus interest – report

by Leo Nieboer

Tahith Chong has decided against signing a new contract with Manchester United amid interest from Juventus.

The youngster, who moved to Old Trafford in 2016, has made four appearances in all competitions since August.

However, with Chong nearly 20 and not looking like getting anywhere near the starting XI, the Dutchman is considering a departure.

According to Calcio Mercato, Chong has opted to not sign a new deal with United.

Meanwhile, Juventus are expressing ‘serious’ interest in the youngster and seem to have the green light to proceed with doing a deal.

But if game time is what Chong wants – immediate game time – then neither United or Juventus serve as viable options.

Surely the youngster’s best bet will be to go on loan to a Championship club, or perhaps to Spain, in order to get the feel for playing at a senior level on a weekly basis.
