Manchester United need to strengthen their team in the winter transfer window and they must also hold on to the key stars present in their current squad.
According to reports (The Sun), Italian giants Inter Milan are readying a two year deal to sign Ashley Young from the Red Devils when the veteran star’s current contract with the club expires next summer.
As per Mirror Sport, the 33-year-old currently earns £130,000-a-week and he ideally wants to extend his current deal with United, however, the club have not reached any agreement as yet.
Young joined Manchester United from Aston Villa when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge at Old Trafford.
Initially, he started in his preferred playing position i.e. left wing, however in the recent years, managers have mainly used him in the fullback positions.
This season, he mostly played in the right back position under Jose Mourinho and even interim boss Solskjaer has used him in that role. Last season, another veteran in the form of Valencia was the first choice right back but now, he is nowhere to be found in the starting team.
United did sign young full-back Dalot in the summer transfer window but he has only made five appearances (four starts) in the Premier League so far. The Portuguese starlet needs to improve and earn experience before getting regular game time at Old Trafford.
In my view, the Red Devils should look at the future. The likes of Valencia and Young are past their best and must be offloaded next summer.
So, United should allow Young to agree personal terms with any foreign club this month and they should move to sign a proven quality right back, someone, who could serve the club in the years to come.
