Whilst it seemed like Manchester United were set to lose the midfielder in the summer according to the latest reports there has been a huge twist.

The heavens must be smiling down at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United right now. Things are swiftly becoming brighter and brighter at Old Trafford.

It seems the Norwegian has finally strung a well moulded side together and is reaping its rewards. The Red Devils have been unstoppable during the last month or so and have played some impressive football in the process.

The linchpin of the side was Bruno Fernandes, who’s arrival seems to have ignited the Red Devils’ midfield and he is proving to be an astute signing.

However it isn’t just on the field where things are going from zero to hero for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. In the boardroom the club are seeming to be making huge developments also.

One player who the Red Devils seemed destined to lose is their bright young product Tahith Chong.

With interest in the Dutch youth international high from various Italian clubs as well as Barcelona, and with Chong’s contract running out at the end of the season, United seemed unlikely to keep him.

However it seems there has been a twist in Tahith Chong’s future at the club.

According to a report by the Telegraph, United are now ‘winning the race’ to tie down Tahith Chong on another contract.

That will be a boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In the past, the Red Devils have allowed young products to leave and have rued their mistake.

An excellent case in point is Paul Pogba, who United allowed to leave on a free contract to Juventus and then re-signed him several years later for a club record fee.

Tahith Chong could have been another example of incompetence. The youngster has been hugely impressive for United’s U23s this season and has undoubtedly been one of the club’s best players.

He’s played well in the first team too in several cameo appearances and the best scenario for the Red Devils would be to loan him out next season in order to further hone his development.
