Manchester United are ready to allow winger Tahith Chong to join Werder Bremen on loan.
The 20-year-old held talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Friday, following his 25 minute substitute appearance in Thursday’s Europa League tie with LASK, and the United manager is happy to allow the Dutchman to leave and gain more competitive game time.
Bremen are keen to sign Chong on a two-year loan but terms have still to be finalised over a loan fee and salary.
Werder sports director Frank Baumann said: ‘That we are in exchange is the case. We are in good talks. Several parties are involved. Some things still have to be clarified and we have to agree. As of now, this is not the case..’
United still intend to sign Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish this summer if they can reach agreement on fees with Borussia Dortmund and Aston Villa respectively. Their arrival will push Chong further down the pecking order.
United have also fielded enquiries for Diogo Dalot and Andreas Pereira as clubs circle for potential loans. Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have also been discussed.
