Player confirms Man United interest but rules-out transfer

vangaal0Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been teased this afternoon as they stuck into their steak and ale pies, with reports that have dashed their transfer hopes.

Feyenoord ace Tahith Chong told Dutch outlet FR12 that Manchester United are keen on his signature but he’s confirmed he will not be leaving the Dutch side.

“Feyenoord is and remains my first choice and we are still negotiating. It’s true that Manchester United are interested in me, but I want to just stay at Feyenoord.”

“There is absolutely no question that I’m going out of the club. Feyenoord now has come up with a plan of how they see me in the coming years at the club. I am hopeful that it will be all right and that I’m going to sign a contract with Feyenoord.”

The 16-year-old attacker is tipped for an exceptional future in football but it seems Manchester United will have to wait if they are to secure the signature of the exiting ace.
