Juventus have emerged as a surprise destination for Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong who is close to ending his contract at Old Trafford.
The 19-year-old will become a free agent in the summer if he isn’t offered a new contract by the club, and Juventus are looking at the possibility of getting him without paying a penny.
Daily Mail claimed that the Turin side are hoping to convince the player to join Maurizio Sarri’s side in the next summer window.

Tahith Chong made his first-team debut in January but has failed to nail down a regular spot in Solskjaer’s starting lineup. He has only featured in four games in all competitions this season and he is yet to open his goal-scoring account for the team.
However, it is said that the Premier League outfits are in talks with the youngster over a new contract as they can’t afford to let go of such a highly-rated player who has scored two goals in three games for the U23 side this season.
Meanwhile, United summer signing Daniel James has told reporters that he wants to score 10 goals before the end of the current campaign.
According to him, his target for the season is to record double-digit goals with his new side. James is definitely on course to achieving his mission, having scored three goals so far.
