According to a report from Votebal international via Sport Witness, Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong is apparently willing to leave Old Trafford given manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s lack of faith in the player – with his agent getting in contact with the Dutch news outlet and letting them know the stance on Chong’s future.
The 20-year-old, who started half of United’s Europa League group games this season, missing a sitter in their away defeat to Astana, has also managed to impress in flashes – registering a 100% long ball accuracy over the course of those games (as per SofaScore).
However, according to the player’s agent, that hasn’t been enough to warrant faith from manager Solskjaer despite the board feeling differently – resulting in Chong deliberating over his future at Old Trafford. The winger, in comparison to Daniel James, hasn’t been able to compete with the former Swansea man – with James averaging more shots per game (1.4) and more successful dribbles (0.9) over Chong this season, as per WhoScored.com.
As a result, these United supporters seem willing to part ways with the youngster – find all of their best comments down below.
Seems to have the wrong attitude to be a United player. He hasn’t looked good enough in the games he’s had, and instead of getting his head down and improving, he wants an easier path to take in his career.

Considering he’s looked well out of his depth in the senior team, he’s right.

Chong and Gomes have not impressed in any of the games I’ve seen them play. I think they’re overhyped.

Honestly he can go now if he wants 🤣 his agent acting like he’s done anything to impress even the most optimistic united fans. No future at this club for him.
