Chong Allowed to Leave Manchester United on Loan

United are close to agreeing on a deal with Werder Bremen for the 20-year-old to move on loan there. According to reports in Germany, a deal for the Dutchman is nearing completion.

Both Sky Germany and BILD have reported that Chong is keen to join the Bundesliga on loan this summer.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy for the youngster to head out on loan after he struggled for first-team chances last season.

A Challenging Season for United Starlet Chong

Chong amassed just 34 minutes of top-flight football during his three Premier League appearances last season. However, he has featured more in cup competitions for United.

The winger was on the bench for United’s narrow extra-time victory over FC Copenhagen and he has featured a further six times in the Europa League this season.

Yet, for the promising youngster, another season of limited opportunities will not ideal and he has made his intentions clear at the Theatre of Dreams.

His agent, Erkan Alkan told BILD: “Mr Solskjaer kept his promise from March and told Tahith that he can leave the club.”

Chong Eyes Future With United but Wants More Game Time

The promise that the winger’s agent mentions was part of the contract extension that the ex-Feyernoord player signed in the spring.

Chong signed a deal to keep him at Old Trafford until 2022, emphasising his desire to fight for a first-team place under Solskjaer.

However, he wants to gain more first-team experience by going out on loan – something that United look set to grant.

It is likely that any decision will not be made until United’s Europa League has concluded; the final of this year’s competition will take place on August 21, should the Manchester club get past Sevilla.
