Picture: United’s new signing celebrates move with Man Utd cake!

Manchester United have reportedly secured the signature of Netherlands youngster Tahith Chong, with the attacker confirming the move on his official Instagram page. Now, it looks as though it is one step closer to being official, as he celebrated with a Manchester United cake!

The 16-year-old was being tracked by both Manchester city and Arsenal as well, but it was Manchester United who won the race to secure the highly sought after Chong.

From Feyenoord, the attacker first impressed United whilst at a tournament held at Carrington last year, and now the club have finally sealed his signature.

He has the ability to play all across the front three if required, but he is certainly a signing for the future rather than right away.

You’d imagine he’ll be eased into life at the club, starting at U18 level over the next year or so – before gradually being moved up through the ranks.
