Ashley Young Set To Contract Talks With Manchester United

Former England winger Ashley Young wants to stay at Manchester United for one more year, according to The Sun.

Ashley Young is out of contract next summer and has a 12-month extension option in his contract but he faces only being used as a squad player.

Manager Jose Mourinho is expected to tell him he can move on and will not block any move that will see him get more regular first-team football.

Young was the target of a number of bids and enquiries from across Europe during the transfer window.

But he stayed after Premier League suitors were put off by United’s asking price for the ex-Watford ace.

A Red Devils source said: “Ashley and the boss are going to sit down with his reps and discuss his future.

“He can leave on a free next summer but has the option. The club won’t stand in his way if he wants to go though.

“You have to appreciate he wants to play more with his career coming to the later stages. He does love it here though.”

Ashley Young joined United in 2011 for £15m from Aston Villa.

He has gone on to make 120 Premier League appearances and score 11 goals in his six seasons at the club.
