The Old Trafford side have seemingly been keeping tabs on Chong since he impressed scouts while playing in the Premier Cup for Feyenoord’s Under-17 side at United’s Carrington training facility last summer.

The Manchester Evening News now say there is concrete interest from United and they are keen to put a deal in place this summer.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City have also been credited with an interest but it seems as if United are the leading contenders to complete a deal, although previously Chong has stated he is happy to remain at Feyenoord despite being aware of the interest from Old Trafford.
