Promising Dutch youngster Tahith Chong has arrived at Old Trafford to holds talks with the Premier League giants, according to Express.

The 15-year-old has already attracted many plaudits at Feyenoord and is eligible for a transfer in January when he turns 16.

The wonder kid is also a target for Chelsea according to Express, but the Blues will be disappointed if they miss their target to rivals Manchester United.

The 15-year-old attacking midfielder, who can also play up front, is able to join a club abroad once he turns 16 in January and United appear to have stolen a march on Premier League rivals Chelsea, for his signature, as per the newspaper.

Chong is capped for Dutch under 16 national squad and caught the eyes of the United scouts after his excellent showings in the Premier Cup competitions held at Carrington in July.

Thanks to his young age, Red Devils will not need to pay any transfer fee for the Dutch wonder boy, but Feyenoord will demand some compensation as a reward for developing his skills in their academy.

If he decides to join Manchester United, he will go directly to their academy squad but Chelsea will still be pursuing a deal and the better facilities of the Stamford Bridge club can change the equation.

The young midfielder has a huge quality that is versatility as he can also play as a centre forward thanks to his pace, technique and finishing abilities.

If United are successful in landing Chong, he would become the second Netherlands youth international to move to Old Trafford since Louis van Gaal took charge in 2014 after defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah joined from Ajax last September.

The presence of Louis van Gaal might act as an advantage to lure the youngster to Old Trafford snubbing Chelsea interest as he is a Dutch legend and also has a very good reputation of making youngsters to world class player and also gives them chance.
