Manchester United starlet Tahith Chong’s move out of Old Trafford is in doubt, with his proposed switch to Inter Milan hitting a stumbling block.

The winger was drafted in four years ago from the Feyenoord academy, but has failed to live up to expectations in the Premier League and a departure is now likely.

His agent revealed Chong was looking to leave Manchester United over a disagreement with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Serve A giants Inter – who are now led by ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte – have been actively courting his signature.

But according to FCInterNews, the 20-year-old’s representatives are muddying the water.

Chong and Inter are said to be close to reaching a compromise regarding his salary demands, with the club having tabled around £1.3million per season and the player holding out for £1.7million plus bonuses.

But Agents’ fees are proving to be the issue, with £5.9million initially demanded.

And despite their stance softening to £4.2million, that is still miles off the £1.5million Inter are willing to fork out.
