United offer Young 12-month extension

Manchester United have offered Ashley Young a 12-month contract extension, according to various sources.

The wide player, mostly deployed as a fullback in recent season, will be out of contract under the terms of the current one at the end of June, and he will turn 35 ten days later. Talks between United and Inter Milan have reportedly been held over the possibility of his move to the Italian club this winter, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has apparently expressed concerns over losing any prominent member of the squad. Young still falls in that category, having made a total of 18 appearances in all competitions this season. He may not be the first option at the moment, but he is the first deputy for both Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right and Luke Shaw on the left defensive flank.

Quite apart from that, Solskjaer sees him as a vital influence in the dressing room, and the club have therefore decided to keep him for another season if possible.
