Tahith Chong could return to Feyenoord, claim Dutch reports

Manchester United winger Tahith Chong could return to former club Feyenoord, report Dutch outlet 1908.nl.

1908.nl first broke comments from director Frank Arnesen on Tyrell Malacia’s move to Manchester United, and are a reliable source for Feyenoord news.

The update states that Tahith Chong could return to Feyenoord, adding: “Talks with the winger are imminent.”

Chong could return to Feyenoord

Chong is currently back at pre-season training with Manchester United, but is a real long shot to play any kind of role under new boss Erik ten Hag.

The winger is 22, and has not played a competitive first team game for the Red Devils since 2020.

Chong did score in pre-season last year against Derby, before signing on loan with Birmingham City, where he had a mixed season.

The Dutchman really impressed for the Championship side, at times playing in a central midfield role as well as out wide, before injuries derailed his campaign.

He has previously had loan spells at Werder Bremen in Germany and Club Brugge in Belgium.

Chong has one year left on his contract and Manchester United would likely let him leave for a small fee.

Dutch outlets Voetbal Primeur and FCUpdate also report the news Chong could re-sign with Feyenoord.

Talks will be helped by the positive way Manchester United have worked with Feyenoord to agree a transfer for Tyrell Malacia.

The full-back is set to sign for £15 million, with United hijacking a deal Lyon previously had with the Dutch club, The Guardian reported.

If the deal ends up with United sending Tahith Chong the other way, to re-compensate a small part of the outlay, it will look even better.

United signed Chong from Feyenoord in 2016, and he is one of three players to represent both clubs, although he never made a first team game for the Dutch side, now he could get another chance.
