The Dutch youngster has developed a reputation as one of the best young players in Europe from his time with Feyenoord.
A classy wideman with plenty of pace, power and creativity, Chong was reportedly interesting a host of top clubs before finally deciding last month that United was the team for him.
Now United fans want to know as much as possible about one of their newest young players – and they got the opportunity to watch him in a full game when Holland played Sweden at the Under 17 European Championships in Azerbaijan yesterday.
Chong’s Dutch side are in the semi-finals now after his goal was enough to give them a 1-0 win over the Swedes.

He’s like a talented Marouane Fellaini, isn’t he? Sort of? Okay, maybe not.
Chong is only 16 so it may be a while before we see him make any impact on the United first team.
But at a club with a rich history of bringing through quality young players, maybe Louis van Gaal will decide to use him next season?
