Tahith Chong has been pictured smiling with a fan wearing Manchester United’s new training kit ahead of his move this summer.
The Dutch midfielder has confirmed he is joining Man United from Feyenoord and already spoken about why he chose to move to Manchester. As well as that, his friends out in Holland also threw a goodbye party and got him a United cake.
Chong has already given interviews, had a United cake and now been spotted in our training kit, so we’re just waiting for the official announcement from United.

Comparisons will inevitably be drawn between Chong and Timothy Fosu-Mensah as Tim joined us a 16-year-old, went on to put in two stand-out years with our U18s, U19s and U21s before making his breakthrough aged just 18 but it would be unfair to expect too much too soon from anybody that young.
I’m excited to see Chong arrive at United and be part of Nicky Butt’s shake-up which is geared towards regenerating our academy systems in order to keep up with the growing threat of Manchester City and the rest of the Premier League.
