Tahith Chong explains why he chose to join United
Tahith Chong who will be joining United next month, has insisted that the chance to be playing for the Reds' U21s helped to decide making the move from Rotterdam to Old Trafford. The former Feyenoord starlet is 1 of several youngsters being brought in to boost United's academy but the 16-year-old aims to step up to the U21s within a year while revealed that although he was keen to stay at the Dutch club, he has been really impressed by United's enthusiasm to sign him. He said: "I will start for the academy and sometimes in the U21s. I have been there a few times and I have always been impressed, so it is all up to me to prove myself. We were talking about a contract at Feyenoord and I would have liked to stay longer but all the discussions were very vague. Only after those conversations, I talked to United and I then chose them. Many people said I do it for the money but I chose to join United due to the sporting adventure and it is now time for me to look forward to the challenges."
