Manchester United Football Club are clearly trying to send out a real statement of intent, by getting transfers wrapped up as soon as possible. Earlier today, the club confirmed a move for Eric Bailly. Now a second player is Old Trafford bound.
It comes fresh from the horses mouth, too. The Manchester Evening News say that Tahith Chong has updated his official Instagram page biography, and it now reads ‘Future Player of Manchester United’.
He has also uploaded a photo of himself in a Manchester United jersey onto his Twitter feed, which got the fans talking.

The 16-year old will join Manchester United’s famous academy this summer, after leaving Feyenoord – a team he has been at since the tender age of 10.
Although this deal is obviously one with eyes towards the future, Manchester United have secured one of the hottest talents in the game at the moment. Hopefully, if he progresses the way that the club expect, we could have a world-class star on our hands in a few years time.
