Earlier in the week, we covered a story from Calciomercato in which it was claimed that Tahith Chong will not be signing a new Manchester United contract.

Apparently, Juventus are interested in his services and understandably, the Dutchman wants to play with regularity. With just over six months left on his United deal, the ball is in the player’s court.
