Tahith Chong has taken to social media to thank his friends for throwing him a surprise party to celebrate his expected transfer to Manchester United this summer.

The 16-year-old forward has been heavily linked with a transfer to Old Trafford for months but it now appears that he is set to move to Manchester United this summer.

The Feyenoord striker last week updated his Instagram profile to read “Future Player of Manchester United”, and it now seems to be all but certain that he will be joining the Red Devils.

Chong was pictured with a Manchester United cake on Monday as he prepares for his move to join the Red Devils and work under new boss Jose Mourinho.

He posted the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Thank you guys for the great surprise yesterday love for you guys.”
