Young only has a year left on his contract at Old Trafford and hasn’t had any talks with Man United over an extension, much to the winger’s frustration.
The 30-year-old was the subject of criticism from United fans prior to Louis van Gaal‘s arrival following a number of mediocre performances under David Moyes. However, since van Gaal took charge, Young has undergone a radical transformation and is now the first-choice left winger.
Despite this, Rob Dawson from the MEN has reported that the club are willing to let Young go if they are presented with a good offer.
Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are among several clubs who are reportedly interested in the Englishman.
Young, who continued his excellent form on the left hand side against Barcelona last week, has a battle on his hands for selection in light of Memphis Depay‘s addition to the club. This struggle for a regular spot in van Gaal’s XI would intensify if Barcelona’s Pedro comes to Old Trafford.
It remains unclear what a ‘suitable offer’ would be for Young but given his brilliance last season, especially in big games, it would have to be a considerable sum of money.
Young’s pinpoint crossing and superb link up play allowed United to rediscover their big-game splendour under van Gaal – rip-roaring performances against Manchester City and Tottenham are prime examples of this. As United prepare themselves for a title challenge, letting one of their brightest talents leave this window would surely be a massive oversight by the manager.
