In the modern world of football, the transfer season lasts year-round. While the literal transfers of players take place in the summer and winter windows, rumors, speculation and even concrete agreements can happen any time.
The reports in England suggested that Inter Milan are set to sign Manchester United winger Tahith Chong.
The 20-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Netherlands international joined Manchester United from Feyenoord on a free trasfer in July 2016. The 20-year-old has a valid contract with Manchester United until June 2020.
Chong has played 12 times for Manchester United since signing from Feyenoord.
The 20-year-old has long been touted as one of Netherlands’s most promising young talents.
Tahith Chong has represented Netherlands at Under-15, Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 48 caps and scoring 5 goals.
Antonio Conte wants to sign a new winger and Chong is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that Inter Milan manager has extensively scouted Chong and is considering a move for the winger.
Inter are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Tahith Chong has the talent to play many roles in midfield.
According to the report, “Inter Milan are in negotiations with Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong over a Bosman move. FCInterNews.it says the 20-year-old will become a free agent in the summer when his contract at Old Trafford expires and he has no intention of signing a new deal with the Premier League outfit. Inter and Juventus are eyeing a move for the United starlet and negotiations with the Nerazzurri are going well as they are edging closer to meeting his salary demands. The salary offered is coming to £1.3million per season initially, whereas the player himself wants £1.7m plus bonuses. The problem in Inter’s way, however, is reported to be how much commission Chong’s agents are requesting. It is reported they originally demanded £5.9m but have since dropped that figure to £4.2m. However, it is still a very long way off from the £1.5m Inter are looking to pay.”
