Manchester United are reportedly eager to avoid losing talented youngster Tahith Chong, with Juve pushing to sign him when his deal expires this summer.

The 20-year-old has tried to make a breakthrough at Old Trafford thus far, as he has been limited to 11 matches for the senior side.

That’s notwithstanding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer showing a desire to give his youngsters a chance to impress, and so it has possibly been a frustrating period for the youngster although he did feature in the FA Cup last weekend and did well.

Coupled with the fact that his current contract will run down this summer, it has unsurprisingly led to ask marks being raised over his future with Manchester United.

According to Calciomercato, Tahith Chong is said to be edging closer to securing a move to join Juventus, but Manchester United are being tipped to offer him a renewal in a bid to keep him at Old Trafford.

It’s recommended that a €2m-a-season exclusive agreement could be put on the table by the Red Devils, and so it continues to be seen if that’s enough to convince Tahith Chong to put pen to paper on new terms.

Finally, it may not be just about the money either as he’ll want a clear plan over his progress and ability to break into the senior side in the coming years.

If chances continue to be limited, then perhaps a switch to Juventus would be a sensible transfer, although, given the fierce competition for places at the reigning Serie A champions, he could face a similar situation in Turin.

In turn, it remains to be seen how the situation plays out, but Manchester United appear keen to keep Tahith Chong at the club, while Juve will seemingly be a threat to that plan as they eye bolstering their attacking options with a long-term solution.
