Man United set to clinch transfer deal for wonderkid wanted by Arsenal & Chelsea

According to reports from The Daily Mail, Manchester United are set to complete a transfer deal for Feyenoord prodigy Tahith Chong.

The 16-year-old is regarded as one of Dutch football’s most exciting youngsters and has been in Manchester United’s transfer crosshairs for some time, with The Mail originally documenting their interest at the start of 2016.

Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea have also been linked with the wonderkid winger, who is capped for the Netherlands at U17 level but yet to register a senior appearance for the Eredivisie outfit.

According to The Daily Mail, however, United have come out on top in the battle for Chong’s signature, with talks reportedly in ‘advanced stages’ and the Old Trafford outfit set to conclude them within the next few days.

The Red Devils are currently fifth in the Premier League table, one point behind fourth-place local rivals Manchester City, and face title contenders Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
