Manchester United’s Tahith Chong in talks to return to Feyenoord

Tahith Chong could leave Manchester United this summer as he is reportedly in talks with former side Feyenoord over a possible move.

The 22-year-old moved from the Dutch side to Old Trafford in 2016 and has been spoken of as a future star since, but has failed to make the breakthrough into the United first team.

The winger has made 16 first team appearances for the Red Devils in total, but none in either of the last two seasons, instead spending time on loan at Werder Bremen, Club Brugge and Birmingham City.

Turning 23 before the end of the year and into the final 12 months of his contract at Manchester United, it looks like the Red Devils are open to letting Chong go and accepting that he will not make the grade at Old Trafford.

Dutch publication 1908.nl report that talks have begun over a possible return to Feyenoord for the youngster.

The Netherlands Under-21 international never played a first team game for Feyenoord, leaving the club for England when he was 16.

However, it is the possibility of much more game time in the Eredivisie than the Premier League that could tempt Chong to return to Netherlands.

It was expected that much of the Manchester United squad would have a chance to prove themselves to new manager Erik ten Hag this summer, although there is also need for something of a clearout from Old Trafford.

There is a huge amount of competition in the forward line, where Chong would be looking to make an impact, with Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Anthony Elanga, Anthony Martial, Amad Diallo, Facundo Pellistri and Alejandro Garnacho all hoping to be involved this season.
