Man United Doing Everything To Keep Youngster — Not Tahith Chong

Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong is reportedly wanted by Juventus as part of the deal that will bring Mario Mandzukic to the Theatre of Dreams next year.

It is still uncertain if United will give in to Juventus demands but Solskjaer is reportedly set to release the winger who has failed to win the manager’s heart when given the chance to feature for the first-team squad.

On the contrary, Solskjaer and the club’s executives are not ready to release another Holland youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah at the end of this season because of his obvious qualities.

The defender is in the latter stages of his contract with the Red Devils and he’s free to negotiate a transfer deal with other clubs, but United are set to prevent that from happening.

According to The Sun, United desire to keep the 21-year-old for another 12 months and they are on the verge of triggering a one year clause in his contractual agreement with them.

The media outlet revealed that the club are in talks with the defender over a new contract as they hope to keep him for many seasons to come.

Fosu-Mensah, who recently returned from a lengthy spell on the sideline, has fallen down in the pecking order at Old Trafford and he could be loaned out to interested suitor in January for regular first-team actions.
