Reports in Italy suggest that Juventus are very close to signing Tahith Chong from Manchester United.
Tahith Chong’s contract will be expiring in six months and it looks highly unlikely that the play will be renewing his contract with the Red Devils. The youngster joined Manchester United back in 206.
Juventus are said to be massively interested in the player and it’s highly probable that they will be able to sign the player either for a meagre fee or when he becomes a free agent.
According to Il Bianco Nero, Juventus are closing in on sealing a deal for the teenager.

Other reports have claimed that Chong has been offered a wage of £35,000 a week along with a signing-on bonus of £2m.
The Dutchman, unlike Mason Greenwood, does not appear ready for the first team just yet, so you can hardly blame him for looking to move, although heading to Juventus would seemingly constitute swapping one impenetrable starting XI for another.
Perhaps a loan move to somewhere in the Eredivisie would make more sense.
