Manchester United are open to allowing Tahith Chong out on loan amid reported interest from Werder Bremen. Chong came off the bench in Wednesday’s 2-1 Europa League win over LASK Linz, his first appearance since the Premier League’s restart in June.
Chong made his way through United’s youth ranks before taking the step up to the senior squad in 2018 but has since been unable to establish himself as a first-team regular.
The Dutch Under-21 international was due to become a free agent at the end of the 2019-20 season, but United ultimately decided to hand the attacker a new two-year deal back in March, with the option to extend by a further year.
The winger is clearly in need of more experience in order to continue his development and would be behind Marcus Rashford, Daniel James, Mason Greenwood, and potential new signing Jadon Sancho.
Bremen, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, are likely to rely on loan signings this summer because of their precarious financial position.
Bremen chief Frank Baumann said: “He is very fast, a real flank player and his profile fits our requirement. We can add two or three more players who fit the profile.
“Borrowing players from top clubs like this can make sense to us. Because of our situation, he’s a player who could be interesting.”
