Chong drops hint over his future
United prospect Tahith Chong has been discussing the possibility of staying at Club Brugge next season.
The 21-year-old winger is currently on loan with the Belgian club, having spent the first half of the 2020-21 campaign at Werder Bremen in Germany.
Chong made 15 appearances in all competitions for Werder, scoring one goal and providing two assists.
However, he only managed four starts in the Bundesliga and United opted to find him another club in January.
The Netherlands Under-21 international ended up joining Brugge, where he has made eight appearances to date in all competitions, scoring once and chipping in with four assists.
Chong seems to be enjoying life in Belgium, and told Sport/Voetbalmagazine:
“Staying here for another year could give me stability — but that’s for later.
“As far as I know, there is no option (to extend the loan) in the agreement. We will have to discuss that with Manchester United later.
“I like Belgium. It is a bit like the Netherlands. Something that is in my head: that by staying here maybe a little more stability can come, but it is now difficult to fully focus on that.”
