Feyenoord striker Tahith Chong has reportedly agreed to sign for Manchester United, rejecting Arsenal and several other top European clubs.
Dutch magazine Voetbal International has reported that the Red Devils will land the Feyenoord striker ahead of their rivals, as they move forward with their summer transfer plans.
Dutch journalist Mikos Gouka has claimed that the youngster has made his mind up on his future, saying: “Top talent Tahith Chong (16) has made his choice. He leaves Feyenoord and opts for Manchester United.”

The capture may come as a surprise to some, as Chong said in January, “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.”
The 16-year-old has been dubbed as one of the brightest talents in Dutch football throughout his development.
