Hot on the heels of their first signing of the summer, it looks like another player is on his way to Manchester United.

New boss Jose Mourinho was full of praise for new boy Eric Bailly today however the second arrival may be one for the future.

Feyenoord winger Tahith Chong, who is just 16, has been linked with a switch to the Red Devils for months now and today on Twitter he appeared to confirm the move after he posted this picture of himself in a Manchester United kit.

The in-demand teenager was also being chased by Arsenal and Chelsea but it now looks like he will be slotting into the United Academy, managed by Nicky Butt.

Chong made an impression when he played in an under-age tournament hosted at United's training ground and he spoke glowingly at the time of 'better feeling' he had at the club compared to his club in the Netherlands.

It is expected he will slot into the academy side at United but with the likes of Marcus Rashford and others making the step up at Old Trafford last season, we may not have too long to wait to see the Dutch under-age international in action.
