Manchester United attacker Ashley Young is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract with the club but reports have revealed that the England international’s representative is pushing for an extension beyond a year, according to report.
The 32-year-old has been impressive for United this season since his return from injury. Despite playing in a different role (left-back position) the Stevenage-born has been playing brilliantly in the left backs for the team.
His contract could be trigger by a year as stated by a clause in his contract but he has reportedly set his sight on ending his career at Old Trafford, suggesting that he wants an extension with longer terms as confirmed by his agent.
In the summer, Young had turned a £12million-a-year-offer from Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng and the Daily Mail have reported that Premier League holders Chelsea were also interested in his services.
Blues boss Antonio Conte wanted to sign a player that will prove as competition for Marcos Alonso and Juventus star Alex Sandro was heavily linked with the club. However, Juve did not let the player leave.
The report further claimed that the Red Devils were reluctant in parting ways with their prized assets because Jose Mourinho saw in him a genuine talent that will help strengthen his defense.
It remains to be seen if Ashley Young will be offered a new deal he desires by the club. His current deal with the club fetch him a whooping £120,000 a week and any new deal is certain to be an improvement over this.
