We reported earlier that Manchester United were close to losing Tahith Chong in the summer unless a deal could be reached to keep the young winger at Old Trafford, but reports today suggest his move is almost certain after tension developed between Chong and the club, stemming from the way manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handled the player’s situation.

Chong has been linked with Juventus and is looking to land a long-term contract worth around £50,000 a week at the Serie A giant.
