And after learning of interest from Werder Bremen, he is keen on a temporary switch to the Bundesliga club.

Chong’s agent Erkan Alkan told Bild: “Mr Solskjaer kept his March promise and told Tahith he could leave the club.

“The boy really wants to go to Werder.

“He wants to be part of the preparation as soon as possible so that he can navigate it quickly.”

They add that Bremen hope to complete the deal by Friday so he can travel to the club’s training camp in Austria.

Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt has also revealed his desire to complete the deal and include Chong in his plans.

He said: “He has speed and he dribbles well. It’s exciting for us. He’s a player to deal with.”

Loan fees and salary have yet to be agreed, but are unlikely to be a barrier to negotiations.


Chong ended speculation over his future at United in March when he signed a deal until the summer of 2022.

The Dutch Under-21 star has pocketed a pay rise and now earns around £30,000 a week.

If he signs for Bremen, he will join a club that finished 16th in the Bundesliga last season.
