The agent of Manchester United midfielder Tahith Chong has reportedly met with representatives from Inter Milan, as he looks to secure his client a move away from Old Trafford.

Chong, who moved to United from Feyenoord’s youth system in 2016, remains a part of the club’s Under-23 squad despite being handed several chances by head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

Netherlands Under-21 international Chong has made seven appearances for the Red Devils’ team this term but would have liked more action and, as such, he has been linked with a move away.

The midfielder’s contract runs out in the summer and the strongest interest has come from Italy; Juventus have reportedly been keeping tabs while Inter Milan are also said to be keen.

What’s more, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has now claimed that Chong’s agent has arrived in Milan for face-to-face talks with the club to try to thrash out a deal.

Calciomercato adds that while Juve are said to be Chong’s first choice for a new club, Inter remain in the running to land the 20-year-old.

It is also claimed that Chong has made his final decision on his future and will entertain no further thoughts of trying to make it under Solskjaer.

Elsewhere, a report has claimed that United have agreed a deal to sign Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.



Koulibaly has become one of the most revered defenders in Europe in the past few seasons after impressive performances in the Serie A and the Champions League.

United bolstered their defence in the summer with the addition of Harry Maguire from Leicester and according to Italian reporter Fabio Santini, the deal to bring Koulibaly to Old Trafford will be pushed through in the summer.
