Antonio Conte grills ex-Man Utd trio about Tahith Chong as star weighs up move

Tahith Chong could become the latest Manchester United star to join Inter Milan.

The Dutch midfielder is weighing up his Old Trafford future after struggling to secure regular game time under boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Chong, 20, will be a free agent in June when his contract expires and has failed to agree new terms with United.

Inter boss Antonio Conte is keen on signing Chong and the Italian giants have offered him a deal worth around £50,000-a-week.

It is understood Chong's representatives have held extensive talks with Inter, who are now waiting for him to make a decision on his future.

Chong has made just 12 appearances this season and only featured in the Premier League twice – both as a substitute.

The chance to join Inter could now prove too tempting for Chong, who knows his long-term prospects at United look restricted.

If he decides to quit United for the San Siro he will become the fourth United player to join Inter in the last six months, following in the footsteps of Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young.

It is understood Conte has consulted the trio about Chong's ability and attitude and been told he could be an exciting addition to the Inter squad.

Meanwhile Paul Scholes has slammed Manchester United for allowing Paul Pogba to miss this week's warm weather trip to Spain.

Scholes, speaking on Robbie Savage's Premier League Breakfast Show on BBC 5 Live, said: "Players seem to go off and do their own stuff now, but when I was there our manager wouldn't have allowed that type of thing to happen."

He also stuck the boot into old rivals Liverpool by insisting the Manchester City side of last season remains the better team.

"What they've done so far is nothing other than sensational. They can go and win the treble, they can go the season unbeaten," he added.

"But no, I don't think they are (better than City). I still think Pep's team will always play better football. Liverpool's team just get the job done."
