Manchester United are concerned that Tahith Chong is not getting enough playing time at Werder Bremen and could end his loan period, according to reports.
Chong left United on loan from Werder Bremen in the summer transfer window. After showing promise since joining the academy ranks in 2016, it was time for the 21-year-old to continue his development elsewhere.
The Bundesliga was seen as the ideal destination for the Dutchman. However, things have not quite gone according to plan.
After a promising start to his loan period, Chong had to isolate himself after a teammate tested positive for Covid-19. It was one of several factors that have slowed his progress.
In total, Chong has started just three games in the Bundesliga so far. He has made seven other bench appearances but has yet to contribute a goal or an assist.
He scored as a substitute in a DFB Pokal match, but that was on his debut in September. The Dutchman has struggled to prevail ever since.
Werder Bremen have previously denied the idea that clubs are concerned about Chong’s inaction.. However, a new report suggests otherwise.
According to Football transfersWerder Bremen could send Chong back to Manchester United in January.
The German club is open to keeping Chong, but Manchester United are eager to make sure their player doesn’t stagnate. So they could call him back to Old Trafford and find him a new temporary home.
Decisive months for Chong
Chong remains under contract with United until 2022, so the next few months will be crucial for his future. If you want to guarantee a longer stay in Manchester, you will soon have to demonstrate what you can do on a bigger stage.
It is not yet clear whether other clubs have made their own interest in Chong known.
However, United wants to see him play more regularly, so he might hear from the new suitors.
