Man Utd set to let Tahith Chong join Werder Bremen on loan this transfer window, says Bundesliga chief

MANCHESTER UNITED's Tahith Chong could be heading to the Bundesliga with the club willing to let the winger join Werder Bremen on loan. 

Chong, 20, is reported to have had talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Friday, following his appearance in United’s Europa League game against LASK. 

The Netherlands-born winger made a 25-minute appearance as a substitute during United’s 2-1 win against the Austrian club on Thursday.

And the Dutch Under-21 international, who’s made just nine appearances in the Europa and Premier Leagues, is keen to get more minutes under his belt. 

According to the Daily Mail, Bremen are eager to sign Chong on a two-year loan deal. 

However a loan fee and salary are reportedly yet to be finalised.

Werder sports director Frank Baumann said: “That we are in exchange is the case. We are in good talks. 

“Several parties are involved. Some things still have to be clarified and we have to agree. As of now, this is not the case.”

United are thought to be pressing ahead with plans to sign Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish. 

Should deals for both players go ahead, it is likely Chong could face an uphill struggle to get more game time at Old Trafford. 

The young Dutch winger is well thought of by Solskjaer, who backed the 20-year-old’s contract extension this year. 

The new contract, signed in March, means Chong will remain with the club until June 2022. 

Other United players who are targets for Premiership and European sides include Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, and Chris Smalling. 

Dalot is reported to have attracted interest from Everton while Newcastle United are rumoured to be keen on Lingard.
