TAHITH CHONG wants to quit Manchester United to head to the Bundesliga and will hold talks with the club TODAY, according to his agent.
The Dutch winger, 20, has been at the club since 2016, working his way through the youth ranks before breaking into the first-team setup in 2018.
Tahith Chong wants a move to the Bundesliga, according to his agent
Chong most-recently played in the 2-1 Europa League last-16 second-leg win over LASK, coming off the bench.
He was set to leave the club at the end of the 2019-20 season with his contract expiring – before signing a new two-year deal in March.
That scuppered Inter Milan and Juventus’ hopes of signing the talented youngster.
But despite committing his future to Man Utd just five months ago, Chong appears to have had a change of heart.
Chong’s agent, Erkan Alkan, told German publication Bild: “Tahith wants to go to the Bundesliga.
“We will talk about that with Manchester United on Thursday.”
And German side Werder Bremen have already come knocking for Chong after the revelation.
Werder sporting director, Frank Baumann, revealed his team were interested, but hinted at a loan deal rather than permanent transfer.
Baumann said: “[Chong] is very fast, he comes in from the wing – he fits our profile.
“We can add two or three more players.
“Borrowing guys from top clubs like this can make sense to us.
“Chong is a player who could be interesting.
“I know the player. We’ll get an attacking winger. I do not want to say more.”
