Manchester United are open to allowing Tahith Chong out on loan amid reported interest from Werder Bremen.
Chong came off the bench in Wednesday’s 2-1 Europa League win over LASK Linz, his first appearance since the Premier League’s restart in June.
The 20-year-old signed a new contract in March which runs until the summer of 2022.
Werder Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann said on Tuesday that the Bundesliga club had potential interest in signing Chong.
Bremen, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, are likely to rely on loan signings this summer because of their precarious financial position.
Baumann said: “He plays with great speed and his profile fits. Because of our situation, he is a player who could be interesting.”
The transfer window is open and there are A-list players in demand and whose futures are uncertain.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho, Mesut Ozil, Wilfried Zaha, Kai Havertz, Gareth Bale and much, much more…
All the latest news, analysis and rumours from the window in one place.
The summer transfer window will run for 10 weeks from July 27 and close at 11pm on October 5.
A domestic-only window for trades between the Premier League and EFL then runs from October 5 and closes on Friday October 16 at 5pm. Follow all the news and analysis on Sky Sports News and across Sky Sports’ digital platforms, including with our dedicated Transfer Centre blog.
