Will he stay or will he go?
Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong has spoken out amid reports that he could leave the club when his contract expires next summer.
The 19-year-old was handed his United senior debut back in January against Reading.
Since then, Chong has become more of a first-team player at United, and has made four appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side during this campaign.
However, Chong’s current deal is actually due to expire at the end of the season.
That means that he could sign a pre-agreement with any club from January onwards, and Manchester United would lose him on a free transfer.
What will worry Manchester United fans is that recent reports have suggested that he could decide against a new deal.
The Italian giants have a track record of convincing players to join on free transfers.
Now, amid reports of a possible exit, Chong has spoken out on a potential new contract.
“I’m still a player of Manchester United and the season is in full swing. My focus is on that.”
After being quizzed on his future, Chong decided against committing to Manchester United, but remained open on his future.
The 19-year-old admitted that it was too early to speak about his contract, and a new deal ‘will come naturally’.
“It’s early right now,” Chong explained to FOX Sports, as cited by the Mirror.
“I’m still a player of Manchester United and the season is in full swing. My focus is on that.
“The contract will come naturally. I am now focusing on this season.”
