But United have not given up hope of convincing the promising Dutchman to keep developing at the club.
They are optimistic that he will sign a new five-year contract but Chong is now able to speak to different clubs across Europe.
He is due to sit down with United and discuss terms in the next few weeks. A club source told the Sun: ‘The club hasn’t given up hope. Tahith knows how highly we rate him.
‘Juventus are apparently pushing quite hard, so it must be quite a difficult time for him.
‘United have consistently shown that young players here don’t need to chase the money elsewhere.’
