Manchester United signed Tahith Chong for their academy from Feyenoord in 2016, but his development was hindered after he suffered a cruciate ligament injury in 2017.

He was out of action for the majority of that year and since regaining full fitness, the 19-year-old has impressed while featuring for the Red Devils’ reserve team.

The teenager also caught Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attention last season as the Old Trafford club’s manager gave the winger opportunities in the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League.

His appearances were limited in all competitions and the Dutchman had an opportunity to return to his homeland in the summer transfer window.

Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven were keen on acquiring the youngster’s services, but Chong turned it down and explains what convinced him to stay at United.

“You discuss it with your family and the club and then you choose what’s best for you. [And] that was staying with Manchester United at that time,” he told Veronica Inside, as relayed by Votebal International.

Even though Chong rejected advances in the summer, he hasn’t ruled out a move away from the Premier League side in the future.

When the United wideman was asked if he is open to the idea of returning to Feyenoord, he said: “You never know in football, it’s hard to say that now. The season is just starting and the focus is still there… But you never know what can happen.”
