Manchester United attacker Tahith Chong turns down an approach from Barcelona as he wants to join an Italian club, according to a report.

Manchester United attacker Tahith Chong has reportedly rejected an approach from Barcelona as he wants to join an Italian club at the end of the season.

The 20-year-old has made eight first-team appearances for United during the 2019-20 campaign but will see his current deal at Old Trafford expire this summer.

Both Juventus and Inter Milan have been strongly linked with a move for the Netherlands Under-21 international, who joined the Red Devils from Feyenoord in July 2016.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Barca recently approached Chong to discuss a potential switch to Camp Nou, but the attacker rejected the proposal as he prefers a move to Italy.

The report claims that Inter are currently leading Juve in the race, and Antonio Conte's side could send the Dutchman on loan for the 2020-21 campaign should they manage to complete a deal.

Chong's last appearance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side came in the FA Cup against League One side Tranmere Rovers at the end of last month.
