Fans’ view: Does Ashley Young deserve a new deal at Manchester United?

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young has enjoyed a fine season for Louis van Gaal’s side and reports suggest he is set to be rewarded with a new deal at the end of the season.

The news has divided Man United fans, particularly as Young will continue to earn £120,000 a week.

On the one hand, Young is enjoying his finest spell at the club and is keeping Angel di Maria out of the team. On the other, some have questioned if the 29-year-old is good enough to help United challenge for domestic and European honours next season.

We asked our Twitter followers whether or not they think Young deserves a new deal:

Young isn’t getting any younger and it is unlikely that fans will see him improve any more than he already has.

However, van Gaal has often spoken of how he doesn’t care about reputations when it comes to picking his players.

Young has undoubtedly made a big impact on United’s push for the top four and it would be harsh not to reward him as a result. Whether he retains his place in the starting XI next term remains to be seen.
