Manchester Untied have always been a club that spend big for their star players. But what has kept them in the hunt for glory over the years has been their keenness towards giving young players chances on the big stage.
With an overhaul of the squad planned in the summer and the manager set to leave the club, there will be a lot of transfer activity in the summer transfer window.
But the Old Trafford outfit have already started their business as they have agreed to terms for another young player from overseas.
Feyenoord striker Tahith Chong-ha reportedly agreed to move to Manchester United this summer amidst interests from top sides in England.
The 16-year old Dutch national is regarded as one of the brightest stars in Europe at his age and has been scouted by the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.
Chong, who was born in Willemstad, joined Feyenoord’s highly praised youth system in 2009 as a 10-year-old. He has worked his way through the ranks and has impressed at every level of the sport.
Primarily a striker, Chong can play on the wing and also in the mid-field and is understood to have impressed the Old Trafford outfit when he came there to play in the Premier Cup at Carrington complex.
He has already been capped for his national team at the U-17 level and is regarded as potentially one of the rising stars all over Europe.
He also confirmed the club’s interest in him recently and though he said that he wants to stay at the Feyenoord academy for longer, but the English club have been tracking his progress and badly wanted him to join the club at a tender age to help his progress.
And now, Dutch journalist Mikos Gouka, who works for the top newspaper AD confirmed in a tweet that the 16-year old has agreed to terms with Manchester United.
This will continue the legacy at the Theatre of Dreams as they will surely make them happy that they have got their hands on one of the most promising youngsters at the moment.
