Tahith Chong

Tahith Chong could leave Manchester United on a loan deal this summer. Speaking exclusively to Stretty NewsChong’s agent Jonathan Barnett revealed that his client should consider a move to further his development. The Dutchman recently signed a new deal with the club, but his lack of minutes means that a temporary move could be the best move for all parties.

Tahith Chong Could Be Loaned Out By Manchester United

Limited Chances

Chong signed for Manchester United from Feyenoord in 2016. He immediately made a big impact in the youth sides and has been highly rated ever since. He is one of the players tipped for a big future, alongside Mason Greenwood and the recently departed Angel Gomes.

The 20-year-old winger made his senior debut in 2019 as he came off the bench in United’s FA Cup victory over Reading. Chong also featured in United’s famous Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain. He came on for the final ten minutes in the dramatic comeback win.

Despite being a highly rated starlet, Chong only has 15 senior appearances to his name. At 20-years-old, this is not promising, therefore, talk of a loan move is sensible.

Jonathan Barnett, who also represents Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, spoke to Stretty News about Chong’s future.

“He believes,” he said. “We all believe that he has a future there. I think he’s a great talent.”

“But he needs to be playing games and if that means going out on loan then maybe that’s something which we need to be talking about.”

Opportunity to Impress

If Chong was to leave on loan, he would have plenty of eyes on his performances. A young player with his reputation would not be short of interest. His ability to change a game with a piece of magic could prove vital for plenty of Championship clubs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not afraid of giving young players a chance to shine. This season has seen Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams given big roles in the first team. Chong will be keen to impress to force his way into the manager’s thinking.

Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Mason Greenwood are currently scoring for fun. However, if Chong manages to get regular first-team football, there is no reason why he cannot set his sights on one of their places, given his immense potential.
